As one of the most prolific children’s writers of all time, Enid Blyton published more than 750 titles in her forty-five year writing career. The author responsible for such classic literary creations as Adventures of The Wishing Chair, The Famous Five, The Enchanted Wood, The Naughtiest Girl and Noddy is detailed in the dramatised biography ENID.
Portrayed by Oscar® nominee Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech), ENID delves deep into the psyche of the dedicated writer, elucidating Blyton’s childhood and the dysfunctional relationships she shared with the people around her. From her early life as a trainee teacher, sending her stories to publishers, such as Hugh Pollock (Matthew Macfadyen, Anna Karenina, Robin Hood), her journey of validation and alienation is a captivating tale of achievement.
Also featuring Denis Lawson (Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope) and Claire Rushbrook (Secrets & Lies), ENID is a fascinating insight into the mind and temperament of the highly imaginative and ever-popular author.
