Famous in Their Time

“Fame will go by and, so long, I’ve had you, Fame”. Host Dr Shama Rahman looks at people who were famous in their time, but have faded from memory, with:

  • The Diva and Her Diamonds written by Sarah Fleming and performed by Dame Joanna Lumley [Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London]
  • Not a Page in Petticoats written and performed by Kate Reid [Theatre Royal, Vere Street, London]
  • I Have Been a Slave, I Know What Slaves Feel written by James Rampton, performed by Jasmine Elcock [7 Solly Terrace, Pentonville, London]
