Friday 5th & Saturday 6th October 2012: The Marvellous Adventures of Mary Seacole presented by  Rosemary Branch Theatre at Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre (Mill Studio)   8pm Tickets 11.00

Embark on an enthralling journey with Mary Seacole, one of the unsung heroines of British History.

Born in Jamaica, she grew up with a passion for travelling, a gift for healing and a profound knowledge of herbal remedies learnt from her Creole mother. Despite being turned down by The War Office, she took herself to The Crimea where she set up her unique field hospital.

Cleo Sylvestre made her first West End appearance opposite Sir Alec Guinness and was nominated Most Promising Newcomer. Sir Laurence Olivier invited her to join the National Theatre and she has enjoyed an extensive career in theatre, TV, and radio ever since. In 2001, she starred in Isaac Julien’s short film Vagabondia which was shortlisted for The Turner Prize. She is also Joint Artistic Director of the Rosemary Branch Theatre and an Ambassador for The Mary Seacole Memorial Statue Appeal (MSMSA).
