: Shall We Join the Ladies?

A one-act play by J. M. Barrie.

The cast includes Margaretta Scott, Josephine Wilson, Molly Lumley, Aubrey Dexter, Olaf Olsen, Dion Boucicault, Fay Compton, Cyril Maude, Lady Tree, Nelson Keys, Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson, Lillah McCarthy, Sir Gerald du Maurier, Hilda Trevelyan, Sybil Thorndike, Sir Charles Hawtrey, Marie Lohr, Madge Titheradge, Leon Quartermaine, Irene Vanbrugh - this was the brilliant cast that played in the first production of Shall We Join the Ladies?, which was presented at the opening of the theatre of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
Technically, Shall We Join the Ladies? is extremely difficult to produce for television, the action being confined to diners seated round a circular table. It will be interesting to see how producer George More O'Ferrall copes with the problem of showing the diners' faces and not their backs.
(This programme will be repeated on Tuesday, April 25)

Lady Wrathie: Margaretta Scott
Miss Isit: Josephine Wilson
Mrs. Preen: Molly Lumley

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
