Role Judy
Producer Anna Collins Director Sam Yates Writer J. B. Priestley
Finborough Theatre
A forgotten masterpiece from one of Britain's greatest dramatists, J. B. Priestley.

As bankruptcy looms, the ever-optimistic Jim Cornelius, partner at import firm Briggs and Murrison, is fighting to keep his creditors happy and his spirits up. Tensions rise with the arrival of Judy, the beautiful, young typist who shows Cornelius the life he could have led...

Written for Ralph Richardson in 1935, Priestley observes the politics and tensions of daily office life with searing wit and humanity in this hilarious and heart-breaking story of friendship, unrequited love and business.

Emily played Judy, a beautiful young typist, who shows Jim the life he could have had.

"Stardom beckons for newcomer Emily Barber who, as the new typist, Judy, exudes pert sweetness with a slight edge and a mysterious smile." Kate Bassett
Independent on Sunday

acutely well cast ... the impossibly pretty Emily Barber **** Michael Coveney

Emily Barber does very well at stealing the limelight away from Cornelius as the beautiful young secretary Judy Evison. Catherine Usher
