Description: The fourth volume of JB Priestley plays from Oberon Books includes 31st June and Jenny Villiers.
Synopsis: The latest collection of the plays of JB Priestley, famed 20th century playwright and novelist. These two little known plays, while quite different, have important features in common.The 31st of June is a comedy set partly in an advertising agency and partly in a medieval castle and Jenny Villiers is a serious play set backstage in an old provincial theatre, but both plays exploit elements of time. In The 31st of June scenes switch between modern times and the middle ages, while characters move between both. There are kings, company bosses, princesses, fashion models, dwarfs and two rival magicians. causing confusion and romance. Jenny Villiers examines life in the theatre. The doubts of the present are confronted by players from the past, and a jaded playwright recovers his faith in the theatre. Both plays were performed on the stage, but later rewritten and published as novels.
