The Magic of Theatre…
Roy Chatfield, Playwright

Miss Icarus




London, Paris and West Africa 1820-1838.


Letty Landon dreamed of fame as a poet. ¬† Now she has it, thanks to her editor’s manipulation of the newspapers.¬† But playing the role of seer was not what she had in mind. Can she escape her public’s expectations? And what will she do when an editor publishes¬† the one story she doesn’t want on the front pages?

A true story of celebrity, scandal and tabloids – Regency style.
