The Lament of Dorothy Wordsworth

Swallow Theatre

Dorothy Wordsworth has finally found her place, living in domestic and literary bliss in the Lake District with her famous brother, William. They write poetry, nurture their garden and take inspiration from the mountains they climb together. Dorothy believes they cannot get any closer. Then she discovers that William plans to marry her best friend.

Jane Sunderland’s one-woman play was performed in 2019 at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, where Gillian Massey was lauded for her performance as Dorothy.
