About Jenny Villiers

  • Year Released: 1947

Jenny Villiers: a Story of the Theatre is a short novel by J. B. Priestley, first published in 1947. A successful but dispirited playwright is supervising the rehearsals of his new play, The Glass Door, at an old theatre in North England. The actors are irritated by his cynical attitude, but when left alone in the darkened green room he experiences visions of a 19th century tragedy which alter his outlook on his profession. In 1978 it was reprinted by Stein and Day, in a collection of works by Priestley entitled My Three Favorite Novels. The others were Angel Pavement and Bright Day.
