 Edith in the Beginning

The fascinating story of Edith Pretty

A new play by Karen Forbes

Edith Pretty is famously linked to the discovery of the Sutton Hoo treasure, but there was so much more to this remarkable woman.

Join Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company for this brand new production which shines a light on Edith’s heroic wartime endeavours, her marriage to Frank Pretty, and her fond alliance with Ipswich Museum archaeologist, Basil Brown. 

Edith in the Beginning, which has been listed as one of The Guardian’s top-ten outdoor summer shows, will tour to the Sir John Mills Theatre for one performance on Saturday 9th November at 2.30pm. 

Tickets are £14 full price, £12 concessions.

Edith in the Beginning is supported by Arts Council England, Eastern Angles, The Garage Norwich, Bury Theatre Royal, Colchester & Ipswich Museums & Suffolk County Council.
