William Nicholson and R.C. Sherriff
« on: April 17, 2021, 03:45:41 PM »
Andrew has added in the database the excerpt from Marguerite Steen's biography of William Nicholson relating his meeting with JMB who commissioned him to design the scenery and costumes for the first production of Peter Pan - a great read, about their meeting, how Nicholson went about to design the intricate scenery and costumes andů what Barrie thought about Brussels sprouts.

I have also now added the chapter from R C Sherriff's autobiography (No Leading Lady about his own meeting with JMB in his Adelphi Terrace flat. It's quite poignant, but also funny, particularly the story of the chocolate cake...
