Catalogue Note

One group comprises stage designs and costume studies with notes for Douglas Hyde's The Marriage, translated from the Irish by Lady Gregory and performed at the Abbey in 1911. The other is a hand-coloured printed programme for The First Production of Snow-White & Rose-Red1933 at 10 Bushy Park Road. While we do not know who lived at Bushy Park in 1933, it was once known as 'Yeovil' and was the home of the Irish bookseller Charles Eason (d.1908) as well as the composer Arnold Bax for a few years c.1911-14.
