Betsy: Wisdom of a Brighton Whore
A one-woman show Written & Directed by Jonathan Brown

Performed by Isabella McCarthy Sommerville in 2019

Its 1820 (ish) and Betsy is a Brightonian, at work. Having parted company from the St Marys Home for Penitent Women, shes been given a situation by the knobs of the town, keeping an eye on the house of builder and land developer Thomas Kemp, lest he should return with the money he owes his creditors. Whilst shes there, shes required to give comfort to members of the brotherhood, and it isnt long before she meets Guardian of the Town and Chair of the Committee for the Provision of the poor, George Bintshaft.

Flowers arrive. Then wine, then dresses. A carriage to take Betsy to a private supper. More wine, soft words, and then a hot wine-laden breath, urgent whisperings, fumblings at the same dress

Betsy is a prequel to The Well and a sequel to The Silent Stream.
