Excluded from the life class at art school, Laura Knight rises to become one of Britain’s most celebrated painters.

As the first fully elected female Royal Academician, Laura both courts and challenges the art establishment throughout her life. Her curiosity for untold stories takes her from racially segregated Baltimore to the circus big top, but it is the fall of Nazi Germany which brings her greatest artistic challenge. From Nottingham to Nuremberg, Miss Johnson tells the story of a pioneering artist, a working woman and the creator of ‘one of the most powerful depictions of war ever produced’.

This play was especially commissioned for MA Acting and developed over the last year through research and workshops by the writer, director and cast.
