[Christmas Guysers play from New Houghton, Derbys.]
Text (45 lines) of a Christmas Guysers play from New Houghton, Derbys.,
featuring the characters Saint George, Turkish Knight, Doctor, Belsi Bub and
Spare Man. This was performed in the late 1930s, and the performers were
apparently taught the play at school. This anonymous informant had previously
provided a text when interviewed along with Sam Richards (see separate record
dated 25th Feb.1971). He wrote this text down later. There are small
differences between the two.
