Born in 1899 Meggie Albanesi was the rising star of her generation, scoring sensational successes in plays by John Galsworthy, Clemence Dane (The Bill of Divorcement 'the most talked about play of 1921') and Noel Coward. Her life was tragically short; she died aged only 24 in 1923. Frances Gray chronicles Albanesi's brief life, assesses the nature and impact of her talent and speculates on what she might have achieved.
