CARRINGTON’S LETTERS – Anne Chisholm and Eve Best

Sunday 27 May 7:30PM
AT Charleston
Tickets: £20

The artist Dora Carrington was considered a Bloomsbury outsider yet she lived at its heart as the companion of the homosexual writer Lytton Strachey and killed herself when he died. The publication of her Letters, edited by Anne Chisholm, reveals that in her determination to live according to her own nature and in her fluid attitude to gender and sexuality, she challenged conventions in a manner which would be considered controversial even now. Anne Chisholm will discuss Carrington’s life and work, and Olivier Award-winning actress Eve Best, who played Vanessa Bell in BBC2’s Life in Squares, will read from Carrington’s prolific and vivid correspondence.
