Hungry for the Children


Caroline Norton is a Victorian-era writer who is beloved by Britain’s social-conscious ton for her wit, charm and talent. But, when she is forced to leave her abusive husband, Caroline discovers that women have no rights to their children, no matter the horrors they experience at home. In this play, Caroline recounts her inspirational and heartbreaking journey towards changing the law and claiming her rights as a mother and woman in a patriarchal world where, by law, women did not exist.
