The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire
FROM THE BARN THEATRE ARCHIVE

Rookery Nook

by Ben Travers
Directed by Hugh Croydon
20th – 27th March 1976

One of the famous Aldwych farces. They began in 1925 when Tom Walls and Ralph Lynn transferred Tons of Money from the Shaftesbury to the Aldwych Theatre. The plays, all by Ben Travers, were highly successful and immensely popular. They packed the Aldwych continuously until 1933.

Rookery Nook was produced in 1926 with, as well as Walls and Lynn, the delectable Winifred Shotter and, of course, Robertson Hare, with — and without — trousers.
