EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken in 1935, showcases a gathering of leading actors during the first 25 years of King George V's reign. The esteemed group includes Sir Gerald Du Maurier, Sir John Gielgud, Sir Donald Wolfit (Playfair is incorrectly identified in the original caption), Sir Laurence Olivier (Ainley is incorrectly identified in the original caption), Sir Sybil Thorndike, and Florence Eldridge (Jackson is incorrectly identified in the original caption). King George V's reign, which lasted from 1910 to 1936, was a significant period in British history, and the London stage flourished during this time. These actors, who were at the pinnacle of their careers in the 1930s, left indelible marks on the theatrical landscape. Du Maurier, a versatile actor and playwright, was known for his roles in both drama and comedy. Gielgud, a legendary actor, made his professional debut in 1921 and went on to enjoy a long and illustrious career. Playfair, a distinguished actor and theatre director, was a leading figure in the London stage during the interwar period. Ainley, a character actor, was celebrated for his portrayals of villains and eccentric characters. Thorndike, a renowned actress, was a founding member of the Old Vic Theatre Company and a pioneer in the revival of Shakespearean theatre. Jackson, an American actress, made her London debut in 1925 and became a popular figure in British theatre. This photograph captures the essence of a bygone era, when the London stage was a vibrant and thriving cultural force. The actors' timeless artistry continues to captivate audiences today and serves as a testament to the enduring power of live theatre.
