The Best of Friends

The Best of Friends $16.99

Hugh Whitemore

Published by AmberLane Press

This unusual play by the author of Breaking the Code is adapted from the letters and writings of Dame Laurentia McLachlan, Sir Sydney Cockerell and George Bernard Shaw, close friends who exchanged a flood of correspondence during their lives

Their letters and essays are cleverly woven into a play about friendship, love of learning, and the inquiring mind's incessant search for answers to the big questions
