Obituary: Anona Winn
Monday 14 March 1994
Praise for Anona's versatility, however, should not extend to crediting her name being 'up in lights' as Peter Pan at the London Palladium. In 1937 she played Peter on tour, but the role was taken over at the London Palladium by the film- star Anna Neagle.
It is also worth noting the omission of any mention of The Bungalow Club, one of Anona Winn's most popular series: she wrote, devised and compered it. I recall being the straight 'feed' who assisted the principal comedian, Morris Harvey, a renowned character actor in the Thirties and Forties.
The 'business interests' referred to in the obituary included Anona's participation in a dress-designing firm, and as a member of that company, Bernice and Partners, she attended the West End premiere of Lesley Storm's last play, Look No Hands, when I produced it with Bernice's designs at the small Fortune Theatre in the 1970s.
