Tipping the Velvet
The MGA Academy presents Laura Wade’s theatrical adaption of Tipping The Velvet, performed by members of our graduating Acting class of 2021.
Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters, adapted by Laura Wade.
Based on Sarah Waters’ original novel of the same name, our story is set in 1887. Nancy Astley sits in the audience at her local music hall: she doesn’t know it yet, but the next act on the bill will change her life. Tonight is the night she’ll fall in love… with the thrill of the stage – and with Kitty Butler, a girl who wears trousers.
Giddy with desire and hungry for experience, Nancy follows Kitty to London where unimaginable adventures await.
Directed by Jake Norton
