An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded British Quad Stage Play Poster (BQ; Quad Crown; measures 30" x 40" [76 x 102 cm]) (Learn More)
Babes in the Wood, the circa 1930s English stage play production. The posters feature really cool artwork (one three-sheet has a well-dressed female knight with two small children in the woods, another three-sheet features sleeping children and birds, the six-sheet has a great image of two small children in the woods with living trees menacing them, and the British quad has two small children watching two men dueling with swords)! A collector from England tells us he believes that this poster (and the other English stage play posters from other classic fairy tales) were used for local Christmas pantomimes (that were very professional productions) that were held all over England for many years. Most of the posters were produced by Taylors of Wombwell from 1929 to the late 1930s (but it seems likely that the posters we are auctioning date from the late 1930s). It was quite common in those pantomimes for women to play boys' roles, and for men to play the roles of unlikeable women (like witches and mean old ladies!). If anyone knows more about this play or this poster, please e-mail us and we will post it here.
Overall Condition: very good to fine. The poster was once very lightly partially tri-folded, resulting in three faint "waves" equally spaced in the poster, but otherwise, it is in excellent condition! (Learn More)
