Biscuits of Love

Synopsis:
Quiconque premiered Biscuits of Love at the Dublin Fringe Festival October 2004. The show tells the true story of the Duke and Duchess of Newcastle, the seventeenth century Posh and Becks: William, the soldier husband who invented modern dressage, and his wife Margaret, the first published female philosopher. The show sees civil war, scientific discoveries and exile through their eyes and is intelligent, physical, insane and very funny. The show went on to tour Ireland.
