Rose Reece an established actress, is challenged that she cannot take a girl unschooled in the dramatic arts and, within a period of five years, train her to the point where she tops the bill in a West End theatre.

Twin girls from a rural background on the Isle of Wight become involved in this challenge and their lives are changed forever.  Faced with the devious plots and wickedness of a young woman anxious to bring them down, they learn that being young, beautiful and in the limelight often results in finding themselves in strange and dangerous circumstances and encountering even stranger characters.

Set in the 1920's when England was recovering from the devastating effects of war, the girls become part of the rebirth of the theatre. Mutually supportive, multi-talented, they evolve as a theatrical force to be reckoned with and major characters in the artistic life of the country.

About the author (2007)

Felicity Fair Thompson, literary critic, lecturer and administrator for writers' conferences, nationally, writes:-   'Vera Morrill weaves an intriguing plot around family and fame, country roots versus city bright lights, success versus jealousy and greed, and past scandals threatening future happiness. The mysteries and story lines really had me turning the page. 'Beginners Please' is full of unexpected twists and turns, with all the razzamatazz and glamour of the theatre.'


An English and Drama specialist, Vera Morrill has written and broadcast stories for BBC Radio, scripted theatrical productions and is a published poet. She holds a Degree from Southampton University and is a qualified teacher of Speech and Drama. Her home is on the beautiful Isle of Wight.
