Chapters 8 to 34 cover Kitty Marion’s life in Britain with her aunt and
family in an eastern suburb of London, her decision to go on the stage and
experience of provincial theatre across the United Kingdom. She began in
pantomime and musical comedy, moving into music hall in the early 1900s. She
writes about life as a touring performer and frequently about the
experiences of the sexual pressure and abuse which women in theatre
encountered, and her campaigns with the Actresses Franchise League to force
the government to address the issue.
