BROOME STAGES - Clemence Dane

This book by a popular English writer of the first half of the last century and friend of Noel Coward (she was the inspiration for Madame Arcati in his play, Blithe Spirit) is a seven hundred page saga of a theatrical family in England starting in 1715 and ending in 1930.  Filled with fascinating characters and incidents,  it is a real page turner as the reader becomes engrossed in the intrigues and romances of this family and the changing life of the world and the theatre over two hundred years.
