Vivacious fifteen-year-old Angela Borthwick takes the reader on an early 20th century journey through the business of entertainment production.

Having created the Green Meadows Drama Society with her the help of her friends and family, she has a variety of first-hand experience on the matter.

Her witty and intelligent guide covers a range of topics, ranging from play production to conjuring and concert parties.

She prioritises the importance of the imagination, giving a wide range of tips and techniques when it comes to areas such as costume, make up and staging.
