E.L.Guilford Collection (1922, A.S.Huskinson - a)
*Mr. A. S. Huskinson (Inf.)
*Plough Lads' Play [East Bridgford, Notts.]
Com. 7th Jul.1922, Ref.M/9913/1-6
*A letter and a Plough Monday Plough Lads' play text from
East Bridgford, Notts., sent by Miss Gertrude Fox. The play
was last performed by lads in the early years of the [Great] War,
although previously performed by ploughboys.
The text is not a coherent whole. The bulk of the script is
in folios 1 & 2. Folios 3 & 4 have additional lines for the
Doctor, and the words of the final song for insertion into the
script, and folio 5 has an additional part for the Farmer's Man.
A notebook in Guilford's collection (Ref.M/9909) contains a
collated version of this script (See TD00756).
The total cast comprises: Tom Fool, Recruiting Sergeant,
Farmer's Man/Ploughboy, Lady Bright, King or St. George, and
It is also mentioned that a plough was used if no money was
given at Hoveringham, Notts.
