Emily Scott Banks plays the famous female writer George Eliot.

The current Echo Theatre production at the Bath House follows the life of a famous female writer who pretended to be a man.

Marian Evans is a brilliant and notoriously unattractive woman living in a Victorian society steeped in conventional ideas of female beauty and behavior. She’s a social outcast and in love with a married man when she starts writing fiction under the name George Eliot.

The latest Echo Theater production “A Most Dangerous Woman” follows the real-life story of the most celebrated novelist in all of England who ultimately lives under five different names and remains completely unknown. The show continues through September 24 at the Bath House Cultural Center at White Rock Lake.


The show continues:

Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and a matinee Sunday at 2 p.m.

Sept. 22, 23, 24 at 8 p.m./matinee Sept. 24 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10-$25. More details here at Echotheatre.org.
