Drama League Schools Easter Programme. 27 March 1937

Lilian Braithwaite.


This clipping from Irene Mawer’s collection relating to the Institute of Mime refers to Miss Lilian Braithwaite who was opening the event’s Easter Drama School of the British Drama League.  I have yet to discover who Lilian Braithwaite was.


The venue was King’s College Of Household and Social Science on Camden Hill Road, London.  The connection with Irene Mawer was that Miss Helga Burgess (of the Institute of Mime) was to conduct mime classes and teach stage movement.


Miss Burgess’ troupe of players, known as ‘Panache’ were in-line to provide the opening-day’s entertainment
