Tell Me I'm Forgiven : The Story of Forgotten Stars Gwen Farrar and Norah Blaney

Child, Alison


The true story of England's first great female double act.

Gwen Farrar and Norah Blaney were stars in the 1920s, singing the popular love songs of the day to each other on stage and recording the hit song of 1924. They topped the bill at the Coliseum, the Palladium, the Alhambra and the Victoria Palace as well as music halls up and down the country. Separately, Gwen toured with the legendary popular pianist Billy Mayerl while Norah starred in the original London production of The Vagabond King. Together they barely disguised the secret of their lesbian partnership which was to endure across three decades against all the odds.
