MODEST opens at Kiln Theatre - starring LJ Parkinson

July 6, 2023
MODEST - a Middle Child & Milk Presents production - has opened at Kiln Theatre, starring LJ Parkinson.

On the final leg of its UK Tour, MODEST is now playing at the Kiln Theatre in London until July 15th.

In 1874 Elizabeth Thompson stuns the Royal Academy with her painting, Roll Call. Five years later, she falls two votes short of becoming the first woman elected to the academy.

In between, she must shoulder the hopes and dreams of women across the country – including her suffragette sister – while fighting for her place at a table full of top hats, ties and mutton chop beards.  

Theatre, music hall and drag king swagger collide as Modest brings you a Victorian art scene superstar.  

Performed by a cast featuring the UK’s hottest drag talent, this electrifying new play will break your heart and start a revolution.
