Extremely rare signature from a member of the prestigious Brough family of actors
Autograph sentiment signed: "Sincerely yours/Mary Brough", 6¼x3¾. Mary Brough (1863-1934) was an English actress of theatre and film, notable for her appearance in many of the Aldwych farces at the Aldwych Theatre in London. Coming from a family of actors including Lionel Brough and Fanny Brough, Mary was destined to act, making her professional debut alongside actress Lillie Langtry in She Stoops to Conquer (1881). She became known for her melodramas and comedies, very rarely performing in more "serious" dramas that proved popular at the time, but did not receive recognition until aging nearly sixty and performing for nearly 40 years. It was at her older age that she was first cast in the Aldwych farces, and became a favorite of presenter and actor Tom Walls and placed into ten more of the farces. Brough also proved successful in film, appearing in over 60 roles over twenty years. She fell ill during a stage performance in 1934, and passed away shortly after at 71. Left margin creased and frayed. Slight surface creases. Fine condition.
