The Rest Cure (for one-act play festival)
March 1956

The Rest Cure was performed (at the Secondary School) - as a one-act play festival entry in the Cumberland Drama League. Two other theatre groups performed on the Saturday night. Mr. Dent was probably chased out of town - Wigton didn’t win! Dad didn’t even include this in his scrapbook and there are no photos.
