Lily Elsie – Pamela – The Sketch – 1918

Lily Elsie - The Sketch - 20th March 1918


The Pretty Heroine of a Pretty Play: Pamela.

The authors’ own description of their production at the Palace a Comedy with Music,” is distinctly apt, and Messrs. Arthur Wimperis and Frederic Norton may be congratulated upon the success of a particularly pleasing play wholesome and altogether charming, with an ideal actress in the title-role. Miss Lily Elsie was warmly welcomed on the first night, and has been received ever since with growing enthusiasm. Pamela Durham is an ideal English girl– very pretty, a sweet singer, a graceful dancer, and piquant in fresh and buoyant fashion that is half the secret of her popularity. “Pamela” is a play and a personality to be seen, and heard, with unqualified pleasure.
