EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES (By Erich Kästner) – Mermaid Theatre (1960)
I won a trip to Mermaid theatre to see Emil and the Detectives in an I-Spy competiton.
I went with Mrs Merriman and Robert Jones(?).
Big Chief I-Spy was in the theatre and we had a chat.
The 20th-century theatre was the life’s work of actor Bernard Miles with his wife, Josephine Wilson. His original Mermaid Theatre was a large barn in his house in the St. John’s Wood area of London.
