National Programme London

Mr. JAMES AGATE : Miss Irene Vanbrugh '
It is difficult for playgoers who delight today in the art of Irene Vanbrugh to realise that she achieved stardom, and so qualified for this unique series, before the turn of the cen- tiiry. After her success in Trelawny of the Wells, in 1898, she soared to giddy heights in th? following year in The Gay Lord Quex, to be followed by another peak in 1906, with His House in Order. She will be heard tonight in extracts from all three of these famous Pinero plays, in the course of Mr. Agate's enthusiastic account of a star who still shines brightly in the theatrical galaxy.
(The scenes illustrated were recorded by means of Gramophone Records)
