Archives - The Thwarting of Baron Bolligrew

by Robert Bolt

Directed by Keith Thompson and Winifred Butler

Thursday 31st December 1970 – Saturday 9th January 1971 in the Auditorium

A delightful play for children and the young at heart in which Baron Bolligrew and his stupid henchman Blackheart oppress the peasants, especially the egg-painter Obidiah Bobblenob. See how Sir Oblong Fitz-Oblong, aided by a magpie, thwarts the Baron and a magician with hilarious consequences.
