I've started to prepare my stock for an event I'll be doing in December... Watch this space, I'll announce it later this month! I will of course promote it and my stock on here and on my websites as soon as it's 100% confirmed.
I'll be taking this very special stash of 1960s Royal Shakespeare Theatre programmes!
They are special because their design is super cool (Swinging Sixties and all that!) and some of the plays feature some iconic personalities (Ian Richardson, Diana Rigg...) but in addition of the programmes themselves, some of them have hidden treasures inside: extra actors profiles, press cuttings and tickets for the performances. And...
I found two handwritten notes with notes that could be used for a review of the play, all dated and signed J.C. Trewin.
It therefore looks like these programmes belonged to the respected critic and writer John Courtenay Trewin OBE (1908-1990), who wrote for The Morning Post, The Observer, Punch, The Illustrated London News, Sketch and many more...
An absolutely amazing find...
Coming to a stall near you (and to my online shop in 2023!).
