Shall We Join The Ladies? by J M Barrie
Odeon Theatre, Taunton, October 25th - 30th, 1948.
This is the first act of an unfinished play written by J M Barrie. It was performed as a curtain raiser to Ambrose Applejohn’s Adventure in 1930, and performs the same function here in 1948, as part of the Taunton Thespians’ 21st birthday celebrations, showing before The Shop at Sly Corner. Notably, John Wilkins directed both productions, and Aubrey French took the role of Sir Joseph in both shows, too.
