An Original Vintage Theatrical English Stage Play Herald (measures 7 1/2" x 10" [19 x 25 cm]) (Learn More)

Artist: Fred Rusby

Red Riding Hood, the circa 1930s English stage play production. The posters feature really cool artwork (the three-sheet and double crown have an image of a far sexier Red Riding Hood than was in any version of the fairy tale I know, and the six-sheet has a great image of Red Riding Hood visiting her grandmother who is actually the wolf; I would be quite surprised if she was fooled into thinking it was actually her grandmother!)! 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 herald has the most minor of border wear. (Learn More)
