A Victorian Playgoer the book by KATE TERRY GIELGUD edited by MURIEL ST CLARE BYRNE arranged for radio by NEVILLE TELLER
Sir John Gielgud 's mother was an inveterate playgoer all her life and she wrote down her impressions of what she saw. She had no conceivable thought that these ' reviews ' would ever be read by anyone but the person they were sent to, and this gives them a frankness and a freshness of quite remarkable distinction.
They were published in October this year and this evening her distinguished actor son reads a selection, bringing to mind many of the legendary stage stars at the turn of the century. Producer GRAHAM GAULD
