Little Egypt
Boxing Day 2011


Dramatis Personnae, or what?

The Little Egypt Mummers Play

previously known as the Stour Valley Mummers
and
featuring the welcome return to public performance of
none other than
David Jukes

After a short break the players had changed into costume for the 2011 Mummers Play.






Neville had adapted an earlier play, introducing some political comments on the shenanigans involving Glemsford Parish Council during the past year.







This seemed to go down very well with the audience who laughed, hissed and booed in proper tradition.







The cast as always acted their parts to perfection, following the script with the precision which can only come with a good pair of spectacles.
