Archives - A Penny for a Song

by John Whiting

Directed by Michael McArdle

Saturday 1st – Saturday 8th October 1977 in the Auditorium

An hilarious yet thoughful comedy set in a Dorset garden in summer at the time of the Napoleonic invasion scare. John Whiting says that he wrote it “at a time of great personal happiness” and happiness has spilled over into the writing.

A distinguished and original play which provides splendid entertainment. Guaranteed to please.
