NOTHING ABOUT ME MUST SURPRISE YOU. I'M AN AMERICAN.
-NATALIE CLIFFORD BARNEY
NATALIE BARNEY'S LAST SALON
Natalie Barney’s Last Salon explores the sensational life of the Parisian-American icon whose legendary literary salon gave birth to Modernism, and whose Sapphic affairs scandalised polite society.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Natalie Barney's Last Salon was commissioned and performed as a solo show, as part of the Notes to the Forgotten She-Wolves series at Shakespeare's Globe in February 2020.
During the pandemic, Reading Fringe Digital re-commissioned the play as an audio drama. It was directed by Fiona Leonard, with Kelly as Natalie, Lucy Newman-Williams as Romaine Brooks and Augustina Seymour as Dolly Wilde.
Stay tuned for news of post-pandemic performances...

THE PRESS ON NATALIE...
'Part audiobook, part drama and part inspirational guide, Burke’s script is beautifully quotable and romantic. Austen-esque and heightened in delivery, this piece is a delight as a listener.'
