CORRESPONDENCE CORNER: Local Guysers' Plays
Eastwood & Kimberley Advertiser,
4th Feb.1972, Vol.75, No.4067, p.8 i
This letter summarises information received following an article published by
the author three weeks earlier. The replies gave information on; Christmas,
Guysers' plays performed at Underwood and Brinsley, Notts., and Heanor and
Pinxton, Derbys., a Christmas, Bull Guysers' play from Selston, Notts., and a
Plough Monday, Plough Bullockers' play from Kimberley, Notts. Information was
also received concerning a Scottish play [Tillicoultry, Clack.].
The form of the name "Plough Bullockers" was probably copied from a respelling
introduced by the newspaper editor into the original article, which in
manuscript used the form "Plough Bullocks".
