THE London Shakespeare Group presents Gary Raymond and Delena
Kidd in Dear Liar, by Jerome Kilty at Wimbledon Studio
Theatre Sunday, May 11 at 7.30pm. The play is directed by
Richard Digby Day.
Adapted from the correspondence of George Bernard Shaw and Mrs
Patrick Campbell, Dear Liar is an enchanting love story;
one which lasted for 40 years.
Dear Liar offers an intimate portrait of Shaw, providing
far more telling clues to his private personality than any of
his plays could hope to do.
The drama is not only an intelligent, romantic entertainment,
but also a history of the English theatre at the turn of the century.
Shining with repartee between two great wits, the play is a masterful
compendium of playful banter revealing Shaw and Mrs Patrick Campbell
in scenes of both confrontation and reconciliation.
Following many performances at the Studio Theatre about literary
legends, this production should be another sure-fire hit, and
pre booking is strongly advised.
