Programme Note:

FM wrote in the 6d priced Programme:

“I am very happy to have in this production three newcomers to the amateur stage: Beverley Sturmer, Priscilla Freeman and John Robinson. I’m sure they will have a successful debut in their important parts. Sheelagh O’Farrell who has had a great success in recent Festival plays is playing her first major rôle in a Three Act Play.

I hope you will enjoy this very lively comedy and be gratified to know that the Young Wick is maintaining its standards with an influx of talented people.”
