Christine Jope-Slade

Born 1891 or 1893, died 1942, aged 49 or 51. The sources (see below) do not agree!

She was primarily a novelist, producing a significant body of work between the two world wars. (List here.)

"Britannia of Billingsgate" was co-authored with Sewell Stokes and is her only work for the stage, premiering on 30 November 1931. However, in 1933 it was made into a film of the same name. That same year she turned it into a novel. But we're not done yet. On 15 November 1953 a new production aired as episode 46 of series 2 of BBC Sunday-Night Theatre. And on 15 February 1958 another new production aired as episode 4 of series 1 of Saturday Playhouse.

She is mentioned several times in this article.

See IMDB for her brief filmography.
