ANNE MORLEY-PRIESTMAN

Anne caught the theatre-going bug initially through visits to Stratford, London and Paris from Jersey after the wartime Occupation. In the 1960s she began reviewing plays for The Stage and over the next 20 years wrote regularly about opera, dance, mime, puppetry, stage design and theatre architecture. She has also edited two antiques magazines and been arts editor for various tourist and lifestyle magazines, lectured on the history of theatre as well as writing for The Daily Telegraph and The Independent.
