Jean Hart is an English actress and singer and co-founder of the Women's Theatre Group.
“Jean was born in East Ham sometime before World War II. Hers was the first generation of working class children to receive full time education. A State Scholar, she went from East Ham Grammar School for Girls to St Martin’s School of Art … then on to Reading University where she gained a BA in Fine Art, then on to Ruskin College, Oxford. Despite her intellectual and artistic talents, music was her true love and she successfully pursued a career as a singer, sometimes at Peter Cook’s famous Establishment Club, sometimes in theatres. She sang Brecht as understudy to Lotte Lenya at the Royal Court Theatre.”
