“Anthony Smee gives a superb performance” THE TIMES
Mr Maugham at Home
Bridging Oscar Wilde and James Bond - do not miss this secret life of William Somerset Maugham. Fabulous wealth flowed from his books, from Hollywood, Broadway, the West End and TV. But behind popular acclaim lay tragedy.
Orphaned by 8, within a lonely boyhood, his reserve, stoicism, stammer and even his sexual ambivalence found seed. Years later and divorced, he made his luxury home on the French Riviera, entertaining the great and good, royalty, prostitutes, the literati and his one great love.
Anthony Curtis, a Maugham biographer, brings the extraordinary panorama of Maugham’s life to the stage; Anthony Smee is well known to theatre and television audiences alike and his films include The English Patient.
