St James's Theatre - 3 reliefs St James's Theatre

Relief: St James's Theatre - 3 reliefs

Inscription

{none}

The four bas-relief panels by Edward Bainbridge Copnall depict the heads of Gilbert Miller, George Alexander, Oscar Wilde and the Oliviers, each supported on either side by appropriate figures.
The Oliviers are easy to identify - see the "Olivier relief" memorial. Our prejudices lead us to identify the other three heads as follows, top to bottom: Alexander (handsome), Wilde (surrounded by books) and Miller (uhm), but we are not certain.

Site: St James's Theatre (3 memorials)

SW1, King Street, 23-24

The passageway between the pub and the modern building houses the SWET plaque and the Olivier relief. The other 3 reliefs are at the far end of the passageway.

We believe the reliefs used to adorn the inside of the theatre, now demolished.
