The Magistrate (Paperback): Arthur Wing Pinero The Magistrate (Paperback)
Arthur Wing Pinero
R227 R183 Discovery Miles 1 830 Save R44 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"With his louche air and a developed taste for smoking, gambling, port and women, it's hard to believe Cis Farringdon is only fourteen. And that's because he isn't. Agatha, his mother, lopped five years from her true age and his when she married the amiable Posket. Well, when I heard the new dad was a police magistrate, I was scared. Said I to myself, 'If I don't mind my Ps and Qs, the Guv'nor - from force of habit - will fi ne me all my pocket-money.' The imminent arrival of Cis' godfather sends Agatha incognito to the Hotel des Princes to warn him of her deception. But it's also where her son has cajoled his otherwise staid stepfather into joining him for a binge. High-spirited carousing leads to a police raid and a night of outrageous mishap as the trapped guests make desperate attempts to conceal themselves from the law and from each other. Indignities escalate at court the next day where Posket, the police magistrate, must preside."

The Collected letters of Sir Arthur Pinero (Paperback, Minnesota Archive Editions Ed.): Arthur Wing Pinero The Collected letters of Sir Arthur Pinero (Paperback, Minnesota Archive Editions Ed.)

The Collected letters of Sir Arthur Pinero was first published in 1974. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.Sir Arthur Pinero's letters, in the collection published in this volume, present a vivid, behind-the-scenes look at the theater in England in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Sir Arthur was one of the most important and influential playwrights of the English stage during his lifetime. These letters, 337 in number, most of which have not been published before, span a period of sixty years, from 1873, when Pinero began his career as an actor at the age of eighteen, to 1933, the year before his death.Pinero was totally absorbed with the theater, and his correspondence provides a record of his ideas about his own work and the contemporary theatrical climate. From his earlier years he gives us impressions of the famous actors and actresses of the period--Henry Irving, Ellen Terry, and the Bancrofts, who were his favorites--and he later acted with them, too.The letters trace well the growth of Pinero's work as a dramatist, and are especially valuable because he wrote little publicly on dramatic theory in general or on his own work in particular. They reveal a dramatist who knew exactly what he wanted in the theater and how he felt it ought to be realized on the stage. He devoted much time and discussion to the careful choosing of a cast and other aspects of production. The letters tell, with as well as reporting on the critical and public reception of his plays. The correspondence also demonstrates his involvement with the development of the native English drama in its own right, and includes forthright comments on Ibsen and on continental drama generally.Many of the letters are addressed to such notables as Henry James, Edmund Gosse, George Bernard Shaw, Henry Irving, and Sir George Alexander, all major theatrical figures at the turn of the century.

Dandy Dick (Paperback): Arthur Wing Pinero, Christopher Luscombe Dandy Dick (Paperback)
Arthur Wing Pinero, Christopher Luscombe
R227 R183 Discovery Miles 1 830 Save R44 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Written in Brighton in 1887, Dandy Dick is tells the hilarious story of the Very Reverend Augustin Jedd, a pillar of Victorian respectability, who preaches regularly against the evils of horse racing and gambling. However, a visit from his tearaway sister, Georgiana, leads him to risk all at the races, much against his better judgement. Mayhem ensues, with romantic intrigue, mistaken identity and a runaway horse. A glorious British comedy, Dandy Dick is a rarely seen treasure that so richly deserves to be revived again, for the first time in almost fifteen years.
