Play of the Week: Stargazy on Zummerdown

on BBC Two England

by John Fletcher
[Starring] Stephen Murray, Roy Dotrice and Peggy Mount
Music composed by DAVID FANSHAWE
with Toni Arthur and Roy Marsden
The Midsummer Festival on the top of Zummerdown in the West Country. Music and dancing, creative swearing and onion-eating contests help to plan the economy for the coming year. In this carnival atmosphere the age-old balance between Town and Country - Toonies and Aggros - must be maintained. The lessons of the past 300 years cannot be forgotten - for this is the 23rd century.
Music conducted by MICHAEL LANCASTER Choreography by JOHN BROOME Costume designer TUDOR GEORGE Script editor MICHAEL WEARING Designer GAVIN DAVIES Producer DAVID ROSE
