a drama by Edward Percy May 1974
Murder . blackmail and comedy.
Villain number one has a host of unpleasant traits, the most damning of which is his supposed homosexuality. Evidence: he wears silk underwear. Villain number one is blackmailing villain number two.
Villain number two is a Frenchman with a secret. Villain number two runs an antiques shop and conceals a smelting plant behind his fireplace. His daughter notices that the mantelpiece is uncommonly warm, but suspects nothing.
Meanwhile, she and the other clean-living young folk find idle pleasure in teasing their elderly housekeeper and her ignorant working-class ways.
This production was originally to take place in March but had to be delayed because the hall was unavailable due to the Miners Strike,
