Tennessee Williams click here.

Paul Ibell’s TheatrelandTalks celebrates the London stage – principally theatre but also ballet and opera, as well as the restaurants and hotels that are an integral part of the glamour and excitement at the heart of the capital.

Paul Ibell’s articles have appeared in The Spectator, The New Statesman and The Evening Standard, among others. His book Theatreland, celebrating the history and current-day cultural force of London’s theatre, is published by Bloomsbury.

The Choice, Paul's first novel, is set in London's West End in 1951. Twenty-year old Tommy, hoping for a career in theatre, becomes the lover not just of Ivor Novello, the wealthy matinée idol, but of Guy Burgess, an Old Etonian alcoholic, charmer - and Soviet agent...

Tennessee Williams (Reaktion Books, 2016), looks at the life of America’s greatest playwright through his plays, short stories and poetry.

Paul was Awards Manager for both the Olivier Awards and Theatre Awards UK, from 2010-2012.

He has lectured extensively, including at the National Portrait Gallery. Paul has also appeared on stage (in cabaret) at the St James Theatre and hosted platform interviews with actors at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
