The Married Life of Elizabeth and Samuel Pepys
Thursday, 10 October 2013 from 18:00 to 19:00 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Coming out of research for a unique Elizabeth Pepys walking tour and in conjunction with “The Pepys’ Church” , St. Olave’s, Unity Arts will be presenting their portrait of a 17th century marriage on the day of the Pepys’ Anniversary.
Using readings from Samuel Pepys’ Diary, imagined entries from Elizabeth Pepys’ diary, music from the time and a talk from the author of The Journal of Mrs Pepys - The Portrait of A Marriage, Sara George, the evening aims to illustrate a sometimes tempestuous but loving partnership.
This is the second of a series of events open to the public where the lives of women of the 17th century are shown in an interactive and interesting way.
