Mrs Pat archiveLegendary nineteenth-century actress Mrs Patrick Campbell has seen it, and been it, all. From her ground-breaking Hedda Gabler on the London stage, to leads on Broadway and heroines in Hollywood, Mrs Pat has travelled the globe playing the most passionate and rebellious roles. And it was not just on the stage that she was witty, wilful and wild. Her off-stage life was equally dramatic. As flame, muse and equal to George Bernard Shaw, she inspired, and played, the very first Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion. Financial hardship, artistic rejection, romantic loss and the agonising trials of aging, could not defeat this brave bohemian. But now, facing Europe's darkest hour, and with the Nazi Party closing in on Paris, Mrs Pat and her beloved dog Moonbeam, stand before the unknown. As she waits to escape to rural France, this remarkable artist is determined not to go out lightly, as she recalls, for one last time, the highs and lows of a defiant and daring life.
