A sketch from George Don't Do That by Joyce Grenfell. Brilliantly observed, funny, bittersweet, Joyce Grenfell's witty sketches and songs never fail to entertain. This edition contains all the material in the original volumes of George, Don't Do That and Stately as a Galleon, including the bloodthirsty 'Ethel' and the unforgettable nursery school monologues.
'Each one a highly individualistic character-study, not in the least
resembling any other figure in the cavalcade. A series of perfect
miniatures, etched in exquisite detail. ' (Theatre World
had no image to preserve, no axe to grind, no future management to
impress. This total lack of "angst" came across the footlights and
engendered an atmosphere of extraordinary trust and love, so that
audiences under her spell felt safe and cozy and somehow cherished.'
'Very funny . . . Grenfell was one of the finest humorous writers and performers of the 20th century.'
