The Mystery of Audrey Lucas
« on: August 18, 2017, 09:51:00 PM »
Dear all,

Thanks for inviting me in. I am researching the work of Audrey Lucas and her stage/play/novels and then her in the late 1920's, the thirties and BBC forties work up to 1943. There is some work noted after 1945, book reviews etc but not a lot. The BBC archives might lead to more.

In her day c.1927-1939 Audrey Lucas was a literary figure and a player in the London cultural and creative drama scene, and this should more recognised, except it is not.

I am aware of:

(a) The JMB connection:

(b) The Waugh connection, so I have been in touch there and:

(c) Her theatre background through two marraiges to Harold Scott and then DA Clarke Smith - both fine actors with long careers into the l950s and 1960s.

I am aware I might be walking on a few hot family coals and apologies in advance. EV Lucas of course wrote lot's of stuff and it is in Durham University. Audrey seems to have left nothing re her books and plays.

So any lines of enquiry would be welcome.

Many thanks
