'Out of Sight' was a play about prison life, first presented at the Gate Theatre Studio on 4 March 1937. The Stokes brothers collaborated in writing plays, but it was Sewell Stokes (1902-1979) who had the more prominent profile, being a novelist, biographer, playwright, screenwriter, broadcaster and prison visitor. His brother Leslie was an actor, and in later life a BBC radio producer; for many years they shared a flat overlooking the British Museum.
The book is in excellent condition, appearing almost unused. Bound in black cloth with slightly faded gilt titles etc on the spine, it has only minimal signs of shelfwear, and the (unclipped) D/J is likewise in good condition, with some marks on the back, and slight fading to the spine and external edges. It is very slightly smaller than the book itself. Internally the pages are clean and bright with no markings. The bottom edges are rough cut.
