Location: Knole House Kent
A special presentation about the staging of Samuel Daniel’s Tragedie of Cleopatra will be made by UCL academics and actors at Knole House in Kent on 9 November, exploring whether Lady Anne Clifford played Daniel’s Cleopatra. This is a unique opportunity to hear the research that led to the recent production at UCL, and to see scenes from the play recreated in the Great Hall at Knole, where the closet drama might originally have been performed 400 years ago.
Knole is one of the country’s most precious and exceptional historic houses, containing world class collections of royal furniture, silver, paintings and tapestries. It was built by the Archbishops of Canterbury in the fifteenth century, gifted to Henry VIII and remodeled in the seventeenth century by the Sackville family. Lady Anne Clifford (1590-1676), one of the most remarkable women of the English Renaissance, lived here as a young wife. The house, set in a medieval deer park, has inspired writers, artists and visitors for centuries. Knole was the birthplace and childhood home of Vita Sackville-West, who went on to create the gardens at Sissinghurst. Knole was also the setting for Virginia Woolf's novel Orlando.
This special National Trust event will be held on: Saturday, 9 November, 5pm-7pm, tickets £15 (bookable on 0844 249 1895).
