A very interesting theatre programme printed on heavy paper.

With an elite cast list, this programme includes ‘A Producer’s Note’ by Mr. Herbert Beerbohm Tree plus an article about the history of the play.

With his extravagant sets and large casting Mr. Beerbohm Tree brought Shakespeare and other classics back into the realms of popularity. Theatre was his life’s work, investor, builder, manager and lead actor. He founded the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 1904 and was knighted in 1909.

A fascinating read.

16 pages including front and back cover pages. Approx. H15.5cm x W23cm.

 

Condition Code: 4: Very good condition with flat pages; faint evidence of old ‘top pocket’ vertical fold. Feb 21/1905 inscribed on front cover in pencil, presumably by the original theatre-goer.
