Annie Horniman

Annie Horniman was born in 1860 in Forest Hill, London, the daughter of tea merchant and founder of the Horniman Museum, Frederick John Horniman. During her childhood, visits to theatre were forbidden, but when a German governess took her to see The Merchant of Venice, she was instantly hooked. She would go on to become one of the most influential (although often forgotten) women in twentieth century British theatre.
