SHAPPI KHORSANDI – Mistress and Misfit
Red Imp presents Shappi Khorsandi & Mary Bourke
Saturday 8 July
Edinburgh preview works in progress
Shappi presents England’s unsung heroine. For too many years she has been known as just ‘Nelson’s mistress’, a bit of a harlot. (You get ONE job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation.) Women’s lib wasn’t a ‘thing’ in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from ‘scullery maid’ to ‘Lady Hamilton’. Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn’t? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in.
Definitely a Red Imp favourite, she always tears the room a new one.
