'84' on stage around the world...
Despite bad reviews in New York, the London production of '84 Charing Cross Road' ran in
London for three years - and has been performed all over the world by hundreds of theatrical
groups since. Here are some images from just a few productions, illustrating the stage sets
and key actors.
ON STAGE - LONDON
1981 - Rosemary Leach and David Swift as Helene
Hanff and Frank Doel.
1988 - Anne Bancroft and Sir Anthony Hopkins as
Helene Hanff and Frank Doel.
'84' was once again adapted by James Roose-Evans in 2007 for a BBC Radio 4 play, starring
Gillian Anderson and Dennis Law as Helene Hanff and Frank Doel. As and when I can get
some more information on this production, I will add it to the site.
