About this show

Yorkshire, 1810. Anne Lister, a landowner and secret diarist, is a gentlewoman that defies convention. As Britain's first modern lesbian, in a time when it is difficult just being female, Anne embarks on her life's mission, to fall in love and find someone to share her world with. But her pursuit of happiness is threatened by a scandalised society, and Anne must fight to live the way she wants to. Based on true events, Gentleman Jack is a passionate and dramatic tale of love and survival in the face of prejudice.

Eleven-time Off West End Award Nominated Arrows & Traps Theatre return to the Jack after their sold-out run of Dracula, with a five-week season of two brand new historical plays about a pair of remarkable female pioneers, performed in repertory by a single cast.
