Paul Robeson was at Unity in the late 1930s
Friday, 22nd October 2021
• I STARTED to make a regular trip to Unity Theatre in the late 1940s and saw many excellent plays over the following 10 years or maybe more.
I also looked forward to the wonderful “Living Newspaper” which became a regular Saturday night event.
One major item missing from some of your earlier correspondents’ contributions, and before my time, was the appearance in the late 1930s of Paul Robeson in a production of Plant in the Sun by Ben Bengal.
I have a copy of the poster for this play, donated to me by a much older friend who was there for the occasion.
