She returned to Birmingham to play “The Boy David” in a revival of Barrie’s play and then went into the Pre-London tour of “Angels in Love”. Before this play came into the West End, Christine decided  to join the Bristol Old Vic company where she played in many notable productions until “Salad Days” was created and came to London, where for two and a half years she was playing Fiona, the young deb, at the Vaudeville Theatre.
