Cuttings book

Scope and Content

Entitled "Repertory Season 1946" and containing cuttings relating to RD's 1946 production of Much Ado About Nothing and Peter Ustinov's The Man Behind the Statue. Includes notices and reviews of the play's production at the Opera House, Manchester, in September, Liverpool Royal Court in early October, and its run at the Aldwych in London where it opened on 16 October and ran for only three weeks before being withdrawn after poor reviews and attendance.

There is some duplication with the material in FRD1/6/3/17, except most of these cuttings come from Durrant's cuttings agency.
