Jonathan Dewhurst was an eminent actor of the Victorian era. He toured with some of the great actors and actresses of the time and, after a successful spell on the London stage, spent two years performing in the theatres of Australia and India. Returning to Lancashire he formed his own touring company, following which he managed the Theatre Royal in his home town of Leigh for eighteen years. During his career Dewhurst shared the stage with such luminaries as Henry Irving, Wilson Barrett, Charles Calvert and Adelaide Neilson, but over the following years he, like many in the theatre, were lost in history. After eight years research Jonathan Dewhurst's great-great nephew, Philip Taylor and his wife, Susan, published his biography in 2001 under the title Jonathan Dewhurst - The Lancashire Tragedian, and brought him to life again. When the book was published not one living descendant had been traced, and there were many unanswered questions. Now, after nine more years of research, a considerable amount of new information has been unearthed, descendants found and questions answered. But the answers were not always what might have been expected - there were many surprising twists to the story. Join Philip and Susan Taylor in the last act of Jonathan Dewhurst's story - before the curtain finally falls.
