The Day After the Fair

The Norbury Theatre, Droitwich (1990)

Adapted by Frank Harvey.   Based on the short Story “On the Western Circuit” by Thomas Hardy.

Good evening and welcome to our first production of the new decade.  It was love at first sight for the group when we read the play which is so well written that it was a joy to rehearse.  It is difficult to know with which character you most sympathise as each in their own way has a sadness and although the play is set in the late 19th Century their stories could be the same today.
