Scope and Content

Press cuttings relating to the closure of Risinghill Comprehensive School, and to the publication of Leila Berg's book 'Risinghill: Death of a Comprehensive School', along with two reviews of Berg's play adaptation of the book, 'Raising Hell', performed in 1973. The file contains original reviews pasted into a spiral-bound scrapbook, which appears to have been compiled by Leila Berg's daughter, Jenny, and loose photocopies of reviews sent to Leila Berg in 2008 by Isabel Sheridan, author of 'Risinghill Revisited'. A covering letter from Isabel Sheridan is included in the file, with lists of press cuttings compiled while she was researching 'Risinghill Revisited'.
