BOOK551 JOSEPH, Tony MAY FORTESCUE "Substantial Damages" May Fortescue (1859-1950) was born Emily May Finney, the daughter of a London coal merchant.
She joined the D'Oyly Carte Gilbert and Sullivan Company in 1881 for the initial run of PATIENCE, in which she created the small part of Lady Ella. When IOLANTHE replaced PATIENCE she created the small part of Celia. She left D'Oyly Carte in 1883. In 1885 she formed - and found fame with - her own theatrical company.
Meanwhile, though, she had taken her first step into the limelight by becoming engaged to a young aristocrat, Arthur Cairns, Viscount Garmoyle. When, a few months later, Garmoyle jilted her, it made her a celebrity. And when, shortly after that, she sued him for breach of promise, her celebrity status became tinged with noteriety.
"When a woman brings an action of this sort, having for its object the acquisition of hard cash, she place herself beyond the pale of delicacy and sympathy.
She cannot serve sentiment and mammon.
The indignation which one feels against the faithless deceiver is very much moderated when the forlorn maiden takes upon herself to revenge her own woes." (The Era, 1884)
It was like TRIAL BY JURY being played out in real life.

BOOK553 SHARP, Keith Drummond BOUFFONNERIE MUSICALE. Th Story of H.B. Farnie HENRY BROUGHAM FARNIE (1836 -1889) was a teacher, writer and journalist in mid-Victorian Fife (Scotland), until his scandalous private life caused him to flee to London. While at first continuing as a journalist, he began writing for the theatre and made the adaptation of French opera bouffe his chosen field. Almost single-handedly he made the genre popular, and popular enough to compete strongly with Gilbert and Sullivan's new English operetta. He had more big hits on the London stage than any of his contemporaries and his best shows were constantly revived in the Edwardian period and between the wars, and were popular throughout the English-speaking world. Then he was forgotten until his pantomime in collaboration with Offenbach, WHITTINGTON, the only show Offenbach ever did to an English text, was revived as a 'millenium' special. But he was a significant figure in the theatre of his day. The Queme Press in conjunction with The Fife Family History Society (2010) pp220, coloured pictorial wraps     £8.50 NEW GANDS BOOK
