Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Victorian Theatre
Jennifer Carnell

A book about the 500 Victorian actors, managers, and other theatre people Braddon worked with in the 1850s and beyond.
It will contain biographical profiles of the actors and actor families from Victorian theatre to music hall of the 1900s; cast lists; pictures; reviews of Braddon's acting, theatre playbills and previously unrecorded pictures and information about Braddon and her theatrical career.

Forthcoming - when it's finished (probably in about 2040, but I'm hoping for late 2014)!
