Neilson-Terry Guild of Dramatic Art

The Neilson-Terry Guild of Dramatic Art was a drama school at 17 Cavendish Square in London. In the 1930s it was run by the actress and playwright, Louise Regnis. Students included playwright Elizabeth FitzRoy, Kirsten Forssmann,[1] Mary Joan (Mollie) Hammond, and Marjorie Johnstone. During World War II most of the school went to Bath, and the company was finally shut down in 1948.[2]

The Nielson-Terry theatre family had included the Victorian actor Fred Terry, his wife Julia Neilson, their daughter Phyllis Neilson-Terry and son Dennis Neilson-Terry. Fred Terry's famous acting sisters included Ellen Terry, and his great nephew was John Gielgud.
