Berkeley Square (play)


Berkeley Square (play)

"Berkeley Square" is a play written by John Balderston which tells the story of a young American who is transported back to London in the time of the American Revolution and meets his ancestors.

The 1929 Broadway production was an enormous success with Leslie Howard (who also co-produced and co-directed the play with Gilbert Miller) in the role of time traveler Peter Standish and ran for 229 performances, a substantial run for its time.

The play was later adapted into a film version with Howard repeating his stage role of Peter Standish, winning him an Academy Award nomination.
