  • British Library, The Lord Chamberlain’s Plays collection, Ref: Add MS 65534–68881, needs to be consulted in the Rare Books & Music reading room. However, the typescripts are not necessarily the London versions. It is clear, for example, that The Dollar Princess is the version used for the try-out in Manchester, which was revised for London: www.bl.uk/
