Swing the Gate is about music hall, theatre, film and television. One family has done it all, from Victorian music hall to silent movies, from 1930s ‘quota quickies’ to high earning musicals, from classic English comedies to edgy ‘kitchen sink’ drama, from straight drama to revue and cutting-edge independent theatre. For over 100 years Gus McNaughton, Lottie Govett, Winiefred Ward, The Poluski Brothers, Eddie Childs, Jack McNaughton and Kay Callard have kept the nation entertained – through world wars and economic downturns. This is their story. Enjoy!
