A fine first edition, with some slight browning to top and bottom of spine. In a very good unclipped dust jacket. Slight chipping to top of spine, and a small tear to the top of the front cover. Slight browning to the back cover and along the inside of the top edge.


Set against the backdrop of post-war Britain, John Osborne's The Entertainer conjures the seedy glamour of the old music halls for an explosive examination of public masks and private torment.

First staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, only eleven months after the opening of Look Back in Anger, the play has become a classic of twentieth-century drama.
