  • Short Summary

    Scenes from the play "London Life" featuring Olive Sloan

  • Description

    Extracts from "London Life" at the Theatre Royal on Drury Lane, London.

    The scenery is praised. We see dancing in the "mansion house" setting (which includes a river through which a little boat is rowed) and the terrace scene at the House of Commons. Actors are featured not known to this cataloguer - one plays a policeman. Other actors play politicians having their photograph taken. Olive Sloan plays Miss Georgie Dream. She flirts with the policeman - he pulls faces.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue 161.

    Note: this show was written by Arnold Bennett and Edward Knoblock - it was a flop and expired after 26 performances.
