Farnsfield, Notts: Letter from Mrs Olifent 22/2/81 [with text of Plough Monday play]
Com. 22nd Feb.1981, Ref.K7-3
Letter from Mrs. Olifent, enclosing a copy of the text of the Farnsfield
Plough Monday play which she had typed out from hand written notes in
the possession of the late Mr. Richard Emmons. He had told her that he
had written down as much as he could remember when he realised that the
play was in danger of being lost. He saw the Residents Association perform
the play in 1978 and confirmed that it was as he recalled it from previously.
Mrs Olifent thinks the play was last performed between the wars.
