FAREWELL TO THE THEATRE

A script-in-hand performance of Harley Granville-Barker’s last play

Produced and acted by Eileen Page and Hayward Morse  
A famous actress decides that the time has  come to retire.
She talks to her lawyer about  her reasons. And they remember the missed  opportunities of the past, and contemplate the  realities of the future.  This extraordinarily beautiful one-act play was written  at the height of the First World War and coincided  with Granville Barker’s own disillusionment with the  possibility for a progressive theatre in Britain. But it’s  also a plea for the enduring value of theatre, especially  one which speaks the truth.  Granville Barker is recognised as one of the greatest  playwrights of the last hundred years.
