Trollope returns to St Georges


Exactly 200 years and one day after his first visit, Trollope popped up again at St George’s, Bloomsbury. His first visit was to be baptised; this time around it was for an evening of readings by members of the Trollope Society of favourite passages from his works. 

Michael Williamson, chair of the society, gave a brief introductory talk before the readings which were:

  • Miss Mackenzie in which Miss Mackenzie is described and kisses her reflaction in the mirror  – read by Lucia Costanzo
  • The Way We Live Now in which the Great Railway to Vera Cruz Ponzi Scheme is described – read by Mark Green
  • Can You Forgive Her in which Alice Vavasor vacillates again between her cousin George and the sensible John Grey while holidaying in Interlaken – read by Claire Munn
  • Barchester Towers in which Mrs Proudie is humiliated at her own party by the Signora Neroni and her brother Bertie Stanhope – read by Dominic Edwards
  • The Last Chronicle of Barset concluding paragraph from the author letting go of his beloved characters in the end – read by Michael Williamson
