5 March – God’s Triangle by Ian D Richardson

At our next reading, we’ll be hearing a new screenplay by Ian D. Richardson – God’s Triangle. The script is based on Ian’s biography of his great aunt – a missionary in East Bengal during the First World War.

Florence ‘Florrie’ Cox was intersex but didn’t know it, having been brought up in an intensely religious family in an age when sex was a taboo topic. During the First World War, she was caught up in scandal and an Establishment cover-up after marrying missionary Reverend Frank Paice while his mistress, Olga Johnston, waited impatiently in the wings.

We hope to see you next Tuesday, to hear what promises to be a fascinating story.
