Poor Old Burton
A comedy by Kathleen Shepherd.
Young Kevin is one of those doubtful geniuses who is a self-constituted 'roving eye' who sees and hears too much. His sister Bryonie and brother Roger have a hard time restraining him from trying out such long-term projects as turning Baby in her pram into an intellectual prodigy. But when Kevin sets out to clear up the mystery of why Father can't come to Weston for the family holiday, everyone has to unite and take notice.
