Family Playbill

1980 edition. Illustrated by Gavin Rowe

Good dustwrapper which is worn at edges.

The Mannerings travelled from town to town, bringing drama and entertainment to the inhabitants of those grim northern places. To the young Lexy Mannering it was the only life she knew, but to her sister, newly arrived from Miss Dingwater's Academy for Young Ladies, the theatre was squalid and provincial. Family tensions, petty rivalries, unexpected dangers and all the richly-patterned life of the Victorian theatre are the ingredients of this compulsive novel by the author of The Swish of the Curtain, who has herself been on the stage.
