London Wall

London Wall

Au St James Theatre

The Two’s Company production of LONDON WALL by John Van Druten transfers to the St. James Theatre, for a limited run. Originally performed at the Finborough Theatre as part of their series of rediscovered early 20th century plays, LONDON WALL sold out at the Finborough where it was garlanded with praise by critics and audiences. In a solicitor’s office, Brewer, the office manager, sees pretty new typist Pat as fair game, even though she is a green 19 and going steady with a reliable boyfriend. Some of the more experienced secretaries try to warn her. Others leave her to her fate. Meanwhile, cynical Miss Janus is jilted by her lover and at the desperate age of 35 her romantic life seems to be over. LONDON WALL first appeared in the West End in 1931 and offered contemporary audiences a rare look at the life of women office workers in the City. An 80 year old play arrives on stage at a time when the continuing inability of men to see women as professional equals and colleagues is exceedingly topical.
