Rediscovering the Post-War British Musical A Tanner`s Worth of Tune is the first book to be written on the post-war British musical, and the first major assessment of the British musical for a quarter of a century, reviving interest ina vast archive of musicals that have been dismissed to the footnotes of theatrical history. This timely reappraisal of the genre and its social background, before the `international` British musicalsbegan appearing in the 1970s, argues for a radical understanding of the shows and their writers, and a rethinking of our attitude towards them. The musical plays of Ivor Novello and Noel Coward- both pre- and post-war - are discussed in detail, as are the two composers who came to dominate the 1950s, Sandy Wilson and Julian Slade, and the little school of plein air musicals that threaded through that decade. The book brings together `adopted` British musicals, discusses the rise and fall of the British `verismo` and the biomusical, whether of Dr Crippen or the Rector of Stiffkey, finally charting the collapse of the British musical`s nationalism in the 1960s as witnessed by John Osborne and Lionel Bart. The book draws on Adrian Wright`s lifelong passion for British theatre music, its writers, composers, performers and craftsmen. Provocative, idiosyncratic and unfailingly entertaining, A Tanner`s Worth of Tune makes a compelling plea for a rediscovery of an era ofpleasures which have too long been forgotten. ADRIAN WRIGHT is the author of Foreign Country: The Life of L.P. Hartley [(1996), John Lehmann: A Pagan Adventure (1998), TheInnumerable Dance: The Life and Work of William Alwyn [2008] and the novel Maroon (2010). He lives in Norfolk, where he also runs Must Close Saturday Records, a company dedicated to British musical theatre.
