'COLVINS LANE'
A Play by GLADYS WARD.
Produced by STUART VINDEN
The Scene is the room of a miner's cottage in the Black Country. The table is laid for tea, while a kettle boils on the fire. A dark, good-looking woman of about thirty stands on the hearth. A knock is heard on the door, which opens to admit a thin, middle-aged woman wearing rough, working clothes.
