Mary Shelley by Angela Wright - book cover

Harvey Teasdale was a Sheffield performer, famous for his clown and man-monkey acts. He attempted to murder his wife and served two years in Wakefield Prison where he converted to Methodism.

This illustrated talk by Rosie Whitcombe, Professor Dawn Hadley and Dr Vicky Crewe about the 1867 memoir of Harvey Teasdale and his fascinating theatrical life offers an informative and entertaining picture of working-class Sheffield and the city’s theatrical underbelly.
