Emily Barber makes her debut in Cornelius at the Finborough

Emily Barber in Cornelius

August 16, 2012

Emily Barber, who is about to enter her second year at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, stars in Cornelius at the Finborough Theatre.


Cornelius, a play by J. B. Priestley, tells the story of Jim Cornelius, an embattled partner at an import firm facing bankruptcy.

As Cornelius does his best to stay positive and keep his creditors happy, tensions and temperatures rise with the arrival of the young and beautiful typist, Judy (played by Barber). Her presence makes him question life and different paths he could have taken.

A story of friendship, unrequited love and business, Cornelius explores the politics and tensions of daily office life with searing wit and humanity.

Directed by Sam Yates, Cornelius will run at the Finborough Theatre from 16th August until 8th September.
