The Gambling Lady (The Bassett Table) is a play Ms. Morgan rescued from near-oblivion in her book The Female Wits. It has all the ingredients she loves: it’s theatrical, has a racy subject—gambling—and features a large ensemble cast including some very strong female characters.
Actress, writer and director, Fidelis Morgan’s TV appearances include Jeeves and Wooster and As Time Goes By, and her theater work at Nottingham Playhouse, Liverpool Everyman, and particularly the Glasgow Citizens won her much acclaim and a Best Actress nomination in The Observer. She has appeared in platforms at the National Theatre and played in the West End.
