Charlotte Badger – the play

Friday, April 24th, 2009

The theatre version of Charlotte Badger was a great success in Charlotte’s place of birth, Bromsgrove in England.

Writer/Director Euan Rose brought the story of Charlotte Badger – Buccaneer to life on stage at the Artrix Theatre, Bromsgrove at the end of October 2008. With packed house every night, the audiences enjoyed the musical comedy based on this real-life story.

For Indra’s author, Angela Badger – we believe a distant relative of Charlotte’s – meeting Euan, the cast and all the backstage people was as much a thrill as the growth in the UK sales of her novel, Charlotte Badger – Buccaneer.

For all who  missed out on a copy of the book, there are still some available. Booksellers in UK, Ireland and anywhere in Europe, order your stock from Gazelle Book Services in Lancaster. (see our Contact us or Ordering page). Distributors in North America, Asia, and Australia & New Zealand are also listed on those pages.

New Zealanders! Don’t miss this opportunity to read the story of the first white woman to live in New Zealand. This young Englishwoman, Charlotte Badger, transported with her baby to New South Wales for a petty crime, took command of a second transport ship which was taking her to the hell-holes of Van Diemens Land and set off across the Tasman with her fellow mutineers. 

Film producers! Euan Rose, who has several films to his credit as well as theatre productions, is writing the screenplay of Charlotte’s story. Please contact Indra Publishing on for more details and your expression of interest. We look forward to hearing from you.
