Jane Clegg (1913)
April 23 - May 18
by St John Ervine
The first London production for over 75 years
We are delighted to share the news that our Everyday Lives in War Centre is working with the Finborough Theatre in London this year again on a revival of a “lost” play from the period.
This time it is Jane Clegg (1913) by the Ulster dramatist St John Ervine (1883-1971). In later life he had the reputation of being a very grumpy, reactionary person but as a young man he supported the suffragettes and was a keen socialist. According to one story, he was standing next to Emily Davison when she ran out in front of the King’s horse on Derby Day 1913. His play, which is a very accomplished bit of work and rattles along at good pace, reflects these sympathies.
For full details and how to book your tickets, please see:
We would love to you there during its 4-week run. The play opens on Tuesday 23 April and runs until Saturday 18 May.
