About Modest

“Cause here she comes. She’s the baddest, bitchin’ babe of art”

In 1874 Elizabeth Thompson stuns the Royal Academy with her painting, Roll Call. Five years later, she falls two votes short of becoming the first woman elected to the academy.

In between, she must shoulder the hopes and dreams of women across the country – including her suffragette sister – while fighting for her place at a table full of top hats, ties and mutton chop beards.

Theatre, music hall and drag king swagger collide as Modest brings you a Victorian art scene superstar.

Performed by a cast featuring the UK's hottest drag talent, this electrifying new play will break your heart and start a revolution.

Written by Ellen Brammar (I Hate Alone) with music by Rachel Barnes, set design by QianEr Jin and costume design by Terry Herfield, Modest is co-directed by Luke Skilbeck (Milk Presents) and Paul Smith (Middle Child).
