*PLOUGH MONDAY PLAY EAST BRIDGFORD VERSION
*A.S.Buxton Collection, Col. 1920s, Buff notebook, pp.68-76

Full text (72 lines) of a Plough Monday play from East Bridgford, Notts. The characters are; Tom Fool, Recruiting Sergeant, Farmer's Man, Lady, King George and Doctor.

A note with the copy in Nottingham Central Library reads: "This version is almost identical with text supplied by A.S.Huskinson & revised by E.L.Guilford 1922 (M 9913, M9909, Archives Dept)"

A transciption error - "XL" for "'ed" (abbreviation of "head") suggests that this is copy, collated from the text and fragments collected for E.L.Guilford in 1922. The "XL" error has been propagated through to a typescript copy in the M.W.Barley Collection.
