The Lost Summer (Hardback)Duff (author)
- Not available
"The Lost Summer" is a vital and necessary re evaluation of an era which is in danger of being written off as worthless and trivial- the era of mid-twentieth century British theatre. Taking the career of one man, Frith Banbury, and actor/producer/director who was active throughout this period, Charles Duff revisits many of the best productions, actors, and playwrights of these years, recreating significant action both on and off the stage. Banbury worked with all the luminaries of this time- John Gielgud, Peggy Ashcroft, Michael Redgrave, and others--and has been an invaluable source of first-hand knowledge and informed opinion. This book will alter many mind-sets and provoke many rediscoveries.
