A celebration of the work of Peter Nichols, the Tony-nominated playwright of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg who died September 7 at the age of 92, will be held November 27 at London's Trafalgar Studios 1.
The 3 PM celebration is presented by the British Library and the current production of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, playing Trafalgar Studios through November 15.
Mr. Nichols’ grandson, George Nichols, will direct Peter Nichols: A Celebration with guest stars to be confirmed. The afternoon will revisit Mr. Nichols’ literary contribution with excerpts from his television and stage plays—including Promenade, The National Health, Forget-Me-Not-Lane, and Poppy—as well as passages from his personal diaries and unproduced plays provided by the British Library.
George Nichols said in a statement, “Alongside the production of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, I’m delighted to be bringing a selection of my grandfather’s work to the stage at Trafalgar Studios for this special event to celebrate his life. It will forever be a great sadness to me that he'll never see me direct any of his plays, but I’m delighted to be continuing his legacy by presenting this work to new audiences.”
