The Complete Beyond the fringe by Alan Bennett( Book )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2003 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the history of theatrical revue in Britain the night of 10th May, 1961, when Beyond the Fringe opened at the Fortune Theatre in London, represents a landmark. The show played for several years to packed and delighted houses and later transferred to Broadway. Not only did it introduce four brilliantly gifted, likable, and immensely funny writer-performers, whose careers have burgeoned diversely since then. It also changed the face of revue and re-established social and political satire in England as recognised and powerful weapons in the armoury of the comedian. The original script of the show itself, out of print for many years, contains some of the funniest writing in England since the war. From Alan Bennett's cleric to Peter Cook's miner, from Dudley Moore's parody of Britten to Jonathan Miller's saga of the blue trousers, it sparkles with classic gems of wit and nonsense. This volume also contains the music of Dudley Moore's songs, the texts of a number of the sketches included in the subsequent Broadway production, and account of the performance history of the show by Roger Wilmut and new postscripts, written 25 years later, by three of the authors"--Back cover
