Along with a few others this is a mounted image, all apparently from the same dramatic production. Male or female?
Please send a message if you can contribute anything to finding a living relative of anyone in the photos, or just want more info. And to complete the 'life imitating art' idea, the album also has snaps of the Lake District, which plays such an important part in A Habit Of Dying.
