SYKES, Eric; MILLIGAN, Spike; BISHOP, Michael; PARK, Phil

Cinderella

London: N.p.[Moss Empires Ltd.], 1953

Mimeographed playscript, bound with brown ribbon in outsize red card covers.

First edition. ERIC SYKES' COPY, WITH HIS NAME TO TITLE PAGE.

This version of Cinderella was staged at the London Palladium at Christmas in 1953. It was the making of Julie Andrews, who on the strength of her work in this show was cast in the Broadway production of The Boy Friend, a huge hit which launched her international career. Also among the cast were Max Bygraves, Richard Hearne (Mr. Pastry), and the future Dr. Who Jon Pertwee, who played one of the Ugly Sisters. The reception for the show was generally good, although some critics questioned the its occasional forays into offbeat, off-colour humour. (Step forward, Milligan....).

A unique copy.
