Auntie Mame (1956)

Jerome Lawrence — Robert E Lee

Rosalind Russell in the original Broadway1956 production of Authy Mame

Lawrence and Lee (Inherit The Wind) based this comedy on Patrick Dennis‘s comic novel about his aunt. A huge success in New York and London, it was made into a movie, a musical, and a movie of the musical. For the first time in many decades, here is the original play.

Merrily We Roll Along (1934)

Moss Hart - George S Kaufman

Pulitzer prize winners Kaufman and Hart (You Can’t Take It With You and The Man Who Came To Dinner) wrote this rarely seen play, the basis for the Stephen Sondheim musical of the same name. It shows, in reverse chronology, the process by which an artist (in this case a playwright) betrays his ideals and friends.

“After the declaration of ethics, it will be impossible to dismiss Mr Kaufman and Mr Hart as clever jesters with an instinct for the stage”.

Brooks Atkinson (New York Times critic)

Sundays September 8,15, 22 at 3.30pm

The Shrike (1952)

Joseph Kramm

Judith Evelyn & Jose Ferrer in the original Broadway 1952 production of The Shrike

Jose Ferrer directed and starred in this 1952 Pulitzer Prize winning drama, as he did in the movie version. A tense psychological melodrama which a mentally fragile theatre director and his recently separated wife torture one another and themselves.
