: Midweek Theatre: There's Always Juliet

by John van Druten
with Daniel Massey and Angela Thorne
Produced by ARCHIE CAMPBELL
(Daniel Massey and Angela Thorne are appearing in "The Rivals" at the Haymarket Theatre, London)

There's Always Juliet
FOR those who were around at the time, the 1930s were not all The Lost Peace and premonitions of doom. Terence Rattigan's Aunt Edna (that type of the assiduous playgoer) had some very pleasant and memorable evenings in the theatre. And none more so than at the Apollo Theatre in 1931 when John van Druten's There's Always Juliet was in its run of 118 performances. There were virtually only two parts in the play, a young American business man and an English girl. They were played by Herbert Marshall and that other Edna - Edna Best; Dame May Whitty was in solicitous, but slightly scandalised, attendance as Florence, the old family retainer.
John van Druten, who died in 1957, made a reputation as a popular playwright in England between the wars He was particularly successful in writing parts for women (as for Sybil Thorndike in The Distaff Side, which is to be broadcast in the New Year). Leonora Perrycoste ('Juliet') for all her stage upper-middle-class background is a charmingly forthright and sensible girl. The conversation between her and her American 'Romeo' is full of surprises, pauses, catches of breath that make it a delight to players with an ear for timing. These two really meet and fall in love; thirty-five years later they still seem to be doing it, and still with a turn of phrase that is happy and memorable.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
