Take a bow! These are the stories that inspired Maggie Smith to take up acting...
Written in 1941 when author Pamela Brown was just 14 years old, The Swish of the Curtain has inspired generations of children to take to the stage. Set in the town of Fenchester, the books follow seven resourceful children who want nothing more than to see their names up in lights.
One day, they come across a disused chapel, and an idea is formed. With a lick of paint and the addition of a beautiful curtain (which, however much they try, won't "swish" as stage curtains ought to), the chapel becomes a theatre - and The Blue Door Theatre Company is formed.
The children go from strength to strength, writing, directing and acting in their own plays. But their schooldays are numbered, and their parents want them to pack it in and train for sensible jobs. But with a bit of luck, and the help of some influential friends, perhaps this might not be the end...
