John Masefield's The Box of Delights Webinar

Peter Harrington

If you are starting to feel a bit Christmassy, here is the perfect beginning to the season, an online conversation and Q&A about John Masefield's festive classic The Box of Delights.

Dr Phil Errington, senior specialist at Peter Harrington and a Masefield specialist who has written his own book abook Masefield' snowy story, chats to novelist and playwright Piers Torday who adapted the book for the stage in 2017, a production which is being revived this year by the Royal Shakespeare Company for their Christmas production at Stratford-upon-Avon

Following a brief introduction of Masefield and his fantasy novels, Errington and Torday discuss the novel and its many facets, from perhaps the earliest flying car to the remarkable finale, and its influence on other creations such as Dr Who.
