ADRIAN MITCHELL was an English poet, novelist and playwright. A former journalist, he became the foremost poet of the country's anti-Bomb movement, called 'the British Mayakovsky' by critic Kenneth Tynan. In his playwriting career Adrian Mitchell wrote many plays for young people, including "Snow White, The Pied Piper" & "The Mammoth Sails Tonight." His dramatisation of C.S. Lewis' "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" opened at the RSC in Stratford-upon-Avon to rave reviews. Adrian died in 2008, however neither he, nor his writing, will be forgotten.
"A window into the soft and beautiful genius that was Adrian Mitchell." - "Camden New Journal" "A scrapbook [compiled] to reflect one man's love affair with the theatre... a splendid read that pays homage to an unusual, dedicated man" - "British Theatre Guide"
