Backstage BrightonBy Stella Cardus
'Backstage Brighton' is tipped to overtake 'Backyard Brighton' as QueenSpark's bestseller of all time.
"My memories of Theatre Royal Brighton were ‘The Single Gulp’ bar (a backstage bar)… with an old barmaid who couldn’t resist playing the fruit machine during performances, so always had to wait for a round of applause or a good laugh before she pulled the handle. I have to say that her timing was not that good!"
This extract from 'Backstage Brighton' is a typically fond memory of the sometimes sleazy side of theatre-going in the city. There are many more - past and present - in this fascinating journey through the history and heritage of Brighton & Hove’s many theatrical venues.
