Harley Granville Barker was born in London on 25 November 1877. His father made a living by converting houses into flats, and his mother, under the name of Miss Granville, was a professional reciter. As a child, Barker often appeared with her in small halls and assembly rooms. In 1891, he became a pupil at Sarah Thome’s dramatic school in Margate, where he met the actor, Berte Thomas, with whom he collaborated in his early attempts at dramatic writing, The Family of the Oldroyds, The Weather-hen and Our Visitor to ‘Work-a-Day’
