Noggin Theatre Company Presents:

Violet Gibson; The Woman Who Shot Mussolini

Written and performed by Alice Barry

A Compelling One-Woman Show Exploring the Remarkable Life of Violet Gibson who shot Mussolini on April 7th 1926.

The Honourable Violet Albina Gibson was born in Dublin in 1876. Her father Lord Ashbourne, was an Irish lawyer and politician. On 7 April 1926, at 49 years of age, she shot Mussolini at point-blank range but only managed to hit him in the nose. It was deemed that Gibson was insane at the time of the attack. She was later deported to Britain and spent the rest of her life in St. Andrews Hospital in Northampton, a mental asylum. She always protested her sanity.


This one-woman theatre piece is based on true accounts of Violet’s life.
