London Wall

London Wall was written in 1931 by John Van Druten, and is a wryly comic look at the life of women office workers in the 1930s.

In a solicitor’s office in the City, the office manager sees pretty new 19-year-old typist Pat as fair game. As some of the more experienced secretaries try to warn her, and others leave her to her fate, her steady boyfriend – an idealistic young writer – desperately tries to win her back. Meanwhile, cynical Miss Janus’ romantic life seems to be over as she is jilted by her lover at the desperate age of 35.
