Waterstones Says

Combining all the glamour and heartbreak of Moulin Rouge with the avid intrigue of The Phantom of the Opera, this is a captivating story of divided love, unrequited passion and coolly-plotted revenge.

Theatres have a certain kind of magic. When the curtain rises, we are all enraptured by the glare of the lights and the smell of the greasepaint but it's when the curtain falls that the real drama begins . . .

In 1952 two young lovers meet, in secret, at the beautiful Southern Cross theatre in the very heart of London's West End. Their relationship is made up of clandestine meetings and stolen moments because there is someone who will make them suffer if he discovers she is no longer 'his'.

But life in the theatre doesn't always go according to plan and tragedy and heartache are waiting in the wings for all the players...

Almost seventy years later, a new production of When The Curtain Falls arrives at the theatre, bringing with it Oscar Bright and Olive Green and their budding romance.

Very soon, though, strange things begin to happen and they learn about the ghost that's haunted the theatre since 1952, a ghost who can only be seen on one night of the year. Except the ghost is appearing more often and seems hell bent on sabotaging Oscar and Olive.

The young couple realise they need to right that wrong from years gone by, but can they save themselves before history repeats itself and tragedy strikes once more?

“Boring & badly written”

When the curtain falls tells the story of ‘Olive Green’ (an obvious self insert of the author) and her lover Oscar (clearly based upon the author’s own boyfriend Oliver). Their story runs parallel to the love affair... More
