His Majesty’s Theatre: One Hundred Years of Glorious Damnation

By (author) Edi Swan

This work celebrates a hundred years of His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen. “His Majesty’s Theatre – One Hundred Years of Glorious Damnation” is a celebration of the long and colourful history of Aberdeen’s favourite theatre. Standing alongside a library and a church, the theatre and its neighbours are known locally as ‘Education, Salvation and Damnation’, with the theatre fulfilling the infernal role. But it’s a glorious damnation and a fascinating story which has never before been fully told. Rich with illustrations, and full of information and theatrical anecdotes, “His Majesty’s Theatre – One Hundred Years of Glorious Damnation” is a compelling guide to an Aberdeen institution. The march of managers and owners through the doors, the construction of the original Frank Matcham master-piece that houses the theatre, its exciting new Modernist extension: this is the definitive archive of His Majesty’s, and is sure to inform and entertain theatre enthusiasts, actors, producers and ‘rude mechanicals’ across the country.
