directed by Marilyn Dray
was first performed at the Aldwych Theatre, London on
June 30th, 1926 and starred J Robertson Hare as Harold
Twine, Tom Walls as Clive Popkiss, Ralph Lynn as Gerald
Popkiss and Winifred Shotter as Rhoda Marley.
The action of the play takes place in the lounge-hall of "Rookery Nook", Chumpton-on-Sea, Somerset. It begins on a night in Summer.
This production by the Lindsey Rural Players has tried to retain the atmosphere of the original play as far as possible and our thanks must go to Dave Dray and the construction team for overcoming the technical problems of a complex set design on such a small stage. We are hoping to raise enough money over the next few months to enable us to extend the stage and provide dressing and rehearsal rooms for the company. [MD May 1979]
