Quality Street in The Unicorn Theatre

March 12, 2018

Quality Street
This week The Studio Theatre Club will be performing J M Barrie’s Quality Street in The Unicorn Theatre, part of Abingdon’s Abbey Buildings. For more information see the Studio Theatre Club whats next

The play is set at the time when all Europe was troubled by the Napoleonic Wars, and takes place in a rather prim and proper town. J.M. Barrie’s comedy is about love and its loss, and was written before Barrie’s more famous work Peter Pan.

The play was a hit and inspired the naming of a certain box of chocolates. (Image © Trinity Mirror. Image created courtesy of THE BRITISH LIBRARY BOARD. All Rights Reserved. Found in Derby Daily Telegraph – Friday 22 May 1936 on www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk.)
