About the Project
Over the past two years Clio’s Company and several hundred London school children have worked to bring Aphra Behn back into focus. Virginia Woolf was one of the first, and most influential people in recent times to highlight Behn’s importance, saying that “all women together ought to let flowers fall” on her tomb.
The “Aphra Behn and After” project involves research, workshops with schools, the creation of this website and the restaging of works by Behn, in particular her final play, “The Widow Ranter”,
The project is made possible by the generous financial support of the Portal Trust (formerly Sir John Cass’s Foundation).
