Priestley's story about a travelling theatrical group. The novel follows the motley crew as they sing, squabble, drink and dance their way from theatre to theatre in the English provincial world of seaside boarding houses, market fairs and catchpenny shows of the Twenties.

Review:

* As cheerfully escapist for today's listeners as it was for readers when it first came out in 1929. The Times * Priestley was a grand writer...we should still listen to him, before time runs out...I am extremely pleased an effort is being made to re-kindle interest in this great writer. Beryl Bainbridge
