'So all the time, while you were pretending to work, you've been having the most astonishing adventures in that corner?'
A forgotten masterpiece from one of Britain's greatest dramatists, J.B. Priestley.
As bankruptcy looms, the ever-optimistic Jim Cornelius, partner at import firm Briggs and Murrison, is fighting to keep his creditors happy and his spirits up. Tensions rise with the arrival of Judy, the beautiful, young typist who shows Cornelius the life he could have led...
Cornelius was first produced in association with Neil McPherson at Finborough Theatre as part of their 2012 rediscoveries season.
Everyone's talking about Cornelius!
