Shappi Khorsandi brings her sell out Edinburgh Festival Fringe show to Northampton as she presents England’s unsung heroine, Emma, Lady Hamilton. For too many years she has been known as just Nelson’s mistress, a bit of a harlot (you get one job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation). Women’s lib wasn’t a thing in Georgian times. Emma moved mountains to haul herself from scullery maid to Lady Hamilton … and yes, she occasionally danced naked on tables to get ahead in life, but who hasn’t? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi raises a glass to the woman England betrayed.
