The Enigma of Kidson goes to theatre!

Posted on 24/09/2020 in Quiller news

Available as a hardback, a paperback, and soon… a stage production!

Offering a virtual toast of champagne to our author Jamie Blackett on announcement of the news that Anthology Theatre will be adapting his biography of the eccentric former Eton schoolmaster, Michael Kidson — and our overwhelming response is succinctly summed up by our MD Andrew Johnston: “We were privileged to publish The Enigma of Kidson, and from the moment that I read the original manuscript I could see how this fascinating and often hilarious biography could work on both stage and screen.”

This effervescent portrait of arguably Britains most controversial history teacher is a delight to read, so we can only imagine what a delight it will be to watch, animating and exemplifying his unique approach to teaching.

We can’t wait to follow this exciting journey as it unfolds — and here’s to hoping there’ll be an office field trip to watch the final product in all its glory! 🥂
