A Special Rehearsed Reading of
“84, Charing Cross Road”
By Helene Hanff, adapted for the stage by James Roose-Evans
A heartwarming and true exchange of letters, read and performed by Street Theatre Company. All profits will go to Cancer Research UK.
In 1949 a struggling American writer, Helene Hanff, hoping to indulge her love of beautiful books of literature, begins a correspondence with a firm of British antiquarian booksellers, and in particular, one Mr Frank Doel. Their exchange of letters lasts for 20 years with Frank’s co-workers and family also joining in the correspondence in response to her generous gifts.
The sharp, witty but affectionate American writer, slowly thaws the staid British business man and although they never meet, their shared love of books and literature, spans the years and the miles and a warm friendship endures.
This is a charity event for Cancer Research UK and kindly sponsored by Earthfare, Glastonbury.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
