For the School Colours: The Life and Works of Angela Brazil
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Prolific childrens author, conservationist, believer in fairies " Angela Brazil was a complicated and determined woman with a tendency to write her personal life into her books. Now largely forgotten, she developed and popularised the schoolgirl tale, and her work paved the way for names such as Enid Blyton, Elinor Brent-Dyer and even JK Rowling. Well-researched, irreverent and insightful, this show seeks to restore Angela and her schoolgirl creations to their rightful place in literary history. This is her story. High-energy, gleeful and self-deprecating (Fest).
