DescriptionBarrie and Lutyens became lifelong friends after meeting c.1899 at Berrydown, Ashe, and when Quality Street was planned in 1901 Lutyens was asked to design the scenery for a production at the Vaudeville Theatre, London. The scenery was again by Lutyens for the 1921 production at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, but in 1929 alterations to it were made for another presentation at the same theatre by his former assistant, S.H. Evans. (Amery et al., 1981, cat no.223)
