This chapter returns to wider questions raised in the Introduction concerning the materials and methods feminist historiography might continue to develop and pursue. The desire to move beyond the perceived limitations of mere recovery of women's work has already resulted in new ways of telling a wider story: here, a detailed look at the work of two actresses, a case study in which the connections between theatre women might usefully be considered. If we are to change the way that theatre women are included in today's stories, we must attend to how they have been marginalised in the stories of the past.
