The Power Behind the Crone

The Power Behind the Crone
Alison Skilbeck

“There are no good parts in Shakespeare for older women.” Professor Artemis Turret, played by Alison Skilbeck, sets out to refute these words in an illustrated lecture. Her old chum, international star Dame Bunti Smart, who was to perform the speeches, lets her down. Professor Turret is forced to unveil her own hidden theatrical talents in seven wildly contrasting roles. The Power Behind The Crone opened the 2016 RADA Festival and played the Bloomsbury Festival. Other shows from Skilbeck include Mrs Roosevelt Flies to London, which had a near sold out 2016 tour and Edinburgh Fringe run at Assembly, and has received 5 star reviews, and Are There More of You? which also received 5 star reviews.
