A loving but candid biography by Frances Donaldson of her father, playwright Frederick Lonsdale

nytimes

A biography of one of the London theatre’s most important wits and playwrights. Donaldson discusses the life and work of the man who wrote over twenty plays and musicals that were produced in London in the first half of the 20th century. Popular among amateur dramatics he has not been much revived in the professional theatre world, but perhaps it is time for a change?
