Marie Lloyd Stole My Life" - a story of inappropriate boyfriends, disastrous marriages, scandalous divorces, intellectual property rights - and a rescue at sea. All wrapped up in the comedy melodrama of the Victorian Music Hall. And it's all true.

“The Boy I Love is Up in the Gallery and I can’t even get a seat in the crowd”

Nelly Power -  Principal Boy, Male Impersonator, Burlesque Act, and one of Victorian Music Hall’s biggest stars.  She was adored by an army of fans, owned properties and had a jewellery collection worth some £175,000 in today’s money.  And she lost it all thanks to several unscrupulous men and one very cheeky young lady.   Nelly’s personal Victorian melodrama includes tales of rescues at sea, the Victorian divorce laws and an early introduction to the “Queen of the Music Hall” Miss Marie Lloyd.

We're thrilled to be bringing Nelly to the Camden Fringe, just around the corner from where she actually lived in Islington.
