1943-10-16 - Janet Neville Program

The mini-epic of Miss Janet Neville's life continues. Here we see a program from a school play. Saint Joan by Bernard Shaw to be precise. The play, in honor of the "New Girls," was performed on October 16th, 1943. It was a Saturday evening. Janet played a Court Page. Also of note was the play was performed at the Shipley School. A name we will see in the future.

Saint Joan was written by George Bernard Shaw in 1923. You can see a trailer for the National Theatre's version here, a version we are quite sure differs from the version Ms. Neville was in.

We researched each member of the cast and crew and could find only one reference to a scholarship in the name of Catherine Bohlen, the Director of the play.
