Show of the Day – Farewell to the Theatre

Farewell to the Theatre
Smallhythe Place
Sunday September 6

A famous actress decides the time has come to retire. She talks to her lawyer about her reasons. They remember the past and contemplate the future. This extraordinary beautiful one-act play, written in 1916 when Granville-Barker was in America coincided with his disillusionment with the possibility for a progressive theatre in England. But it is also a plea for the enduring value of theatre.

A script in hand performance of Harley Granville-Barker’s last play, presented by Eileen Page and David Delve.
