Posting Letters to the Moon

Posting Letters to the Moon


Wartime letters between the actress Celia Johnson and her husband Peter Fleming are read by her daughter, Lucy Fleming, together with Simon Williams.

Not only are the letters highly engaging, but they also provide a fascinating historical insight into that time of true austerity and fearfulness.

Theatrical Gem

British Theatre Guide

These touching and amusing letters from Celia to her husband tell of her experiences during the war – from coping with a large isolated house full of evacuated children, learning to drive a tractor, dealing with rationing, occasional holidays in Cornwall where she took to surfing.

All the while accepting offers, when she could get away, to act – for David Lean, Noel Coward, wartime propaganda films, broadcasts, all sorts, and ultimately in 1945 starring in the classic film Brief Encounter.

Lucy Fleming and Simon Williams stood at lecterns pointing at a presentation with a photo of Celia Johnson on it

It was a joy to discover these letters, and I hope you will find them as funny and moving as I do.
