Summary
"Pioneering, enormously influential and often challenging, Armchair Theatre was ITV's flagship drama anthology series. Bringing high-quality contemporary drama to a wider viewing public, the series easily demonstrated the network's potential to rival the BBC's drama output with diverse and powerful plays by some of Britain's most gifted writers"--Container.
This set comprises twelve plays, originally screened between 1958 and 1966. Featuring performances by some of the era's most celebrated and accomplished actors - including Susannah York, Frank Finlay, Ian Holm, Irene Handl, Donald Pleasence, Terry-Thomas, Patrick Macnee, Arthur Lowe and John Le Mesurier.
