An eccentric and surreal comedy of impeccable manners and good taste. 

 

Ms Wilma Cruikshank, Mrs Carshalton and Mrs Zizou are Victorian ladies who lunch. Their menus have included the most exotic dishes from around the globe; however, their next culinary extravagance may prove a step too far…

 

This eccentric comedy about rather outstanding (if not dangerous) Victorian ladies is both a situational comedy and a biting social commentary. This play is unlike anything else seen before, despite the certain flavour of Oscar Wilde and the lighthearted lunacy that is reminiscent of writings by Lewis Carroll.

 

No White Mongoose For Wilma is a comedy which is disturbing and funny at the same time; a Victorian England unlike any other known portrayal of the era. Prepare to be amused, surprised and quite possibly shocked.

 

Based on the life of Wilma Cruikshank – an alumnus of Oxford University and a contemporary of Charles Darwin – she is remembered for being the first woman to pen a complete description of a fossilised dinosaur. This achievement is however over shadowed by accounts of her having eaten the shrunken heart of King Louis XII.
