Additional information

Saving the Gaiety

Due to popular demand, Lily Publications have revised and updated this book, originally published in 2006.

The book is not a blow-by-blow account of the extraordinary restoration of the Gaiety Theatre and Opera House in Douglas, nor is it intended to be. The words are a ‘trip’ through the often hilarious memories and misfortunes of Mervin Russell Stokes, the man who has spent much of his working life serving the Gaiety and whose dedication in reincarnating this magnificent Frank Matcham playhouse became an all-consuming passion.
