Ursula, Queen of the Jungle
by Chris Eldon Lee

‘I thought you’d be a lady missionary with creaking stays…’ Ursula Graham Bower was a Kensington debutante sent to India to do a little anthropology. When war broke out she wound up organising the head-hunting natives against the Japanese invasion; becoming the Allies’ only combatant female officer. She was hidden in army records as a typist until a Girl Magazine strip cartoon created the legend of The Naga Queen. A one-woman show about former BBC India Correspondent Mark Tully’s amazing auntie, performed by Joanna Purslow, using Ursula’s naturally naughty wit.
