Programme Note: Dial M for Murder

BM wrote:

“The play you are about to see is in the best traditions of Theatre ‘thrillers’, with the issue always in doubt up to the final curtain. If for the next few days you are reluctant to answer the telephone when you are alone in the house, then we will have achieved our object.”

 

Programme Announcement: Dial M for Murder

“We are inclined to the opinion that the title Young Wick Players should be changed. More than a decade has elapsed since Mrs. Penney, Betty and Ralph Dawes and others founded the Drama Group. Our membership now extends over an age group of 14 years to 40 plus. We are constantly being misrepresented as a junior Southwick Players. We are proud of our Under 21 Section but our main strength is in a nucleus of older members who have had ten to fifteen years of experience in the Amateur theatre. What do you think? Ought we to change our name to the WICK THEATRE GROUP or something similar? Your suggestions and comments would be greatly appreciated.”
