The Artist: Ann Curtis had established a very strong costume design career in England, working with such notables as Peter Hall, John Barton and Trevor Nunn, prior to her first production at the 1980 Stratford Festival, "Virginia" directed by Robin Phillips and starring Maggie Smith. In the following years, Ann Curtis’s career was both in the UK and in Canada with productions for Stratford, the Grand Theatre (London), the Canadian Opera Company and the Citadel Theatre.
One of her greatest strengths as a designer was her superb knowledge of cutting and period fashion detail, knowledge which she shared freely with other designers in the atmosphere of the Stratford design studios or in her work as a Lecturer in Costume History at the Motley School of Stage Design, London or in her guest lectures at several Canadian theatre schools, including NTS and York University. (Associated Designers of Canada, 2010)
You can find Ann's work in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She has twice been nominated for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Costume Designer: in 1987 for "Me and My Girl;" and in 1997 for "Jekyll and Hyde." Ann married actor Jeffery Dench, older brother of actress Judi Dench.
The Story: These costumes and this print were created for the 1998 production of "Much Ado About Nothing" when the artist was costume designer for Stratford Festival. If you're a costume, fashion or Shakespeare fan, this is an original print for you.
