    This “lost” and rarely produced work by the author of I Am a Camera and Bell, Book and Candle explores the lives and love affairs of the women employed as shorthand typists in a busy solicitor’s office in 1930’s London. The play had its premiere in May of 1931 at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London and was acclaimed for its hyper-realistic depiction of office life, as well as its soulful probing of the dreams and desires of its female characters.

    LONDON WALL recently received an acclaimed revival at London’s Finborough Theater: “It hasn’t been revived until now, yet comes up fresh as paint,” hailed Charles Spencer of The Telegraph, calling the play “A piece that proves both dramatically engaging and a fascinating theatrical time-capsule.” Time Out London called it “A smart indictment of the meager circumference of a woman’s life as part of the urban workforce of the ’30s, wrapped around a heartfelt romantic drama.”
