The Blue Mouse adapted by Roy Horniman Featured Print

The Blue Mouse adapted by Roy Horniman

The Blue Mouse adapted by Roy Horniman from the German of Alexander Engel & Julian Horst. First produced in Brighton, 27th April and at the Criterion 12th May 1914. Because his boss promotes staff with pretty wives, the hero gets the dancer known as the blue mouse to pose as his wife. Much of the farce derives from the confusion between the wife and the blue mouse. For the Criterion. Photos in the programme indicate that the human figures are from left to right, Madge Lessing as Kitty Vernon (the blue mouse), Eric Lewis as Sir Henry Dowse (the boss) and Percy Hutchison as the ambitious George Barker. Date: 1914

Mrs Anthony Eden & son Simon by Madame Yevonde Featured Print

Mrs Anthony Eden & son Simon by Madame Yevonde

Mrs Anthony Eden, nee Beatrice Beckett pictured with her baby son, Simon. In 1923, shortly before Eden's election to Parliament, he married Beatrice and together they had three sons: Simon (born 1924), Robert, and Nicholas (19301985). Robert died soon after birth in 1928. The marriage was not a success, with both parties apparently conducting affairs. By the mid-1930s his diaries seldom mention Beatrice. The marriage finally broke up under the strain of the loss of their son Simon, who was killed in action with the RAF in Burma in 1945. His plane was reported "missing in action" on 23 June, and found on 16 July; Eden did not want the news to be public until after the election on 5 July, to avoid claims of "making political capital" from it. Date: 1925
