Play by L. du Garde Peach, produced by Howard Rose Here is an engaging variant of the legend of the Nottinghamshire village, whose inhabitants feigned a general 'idiocy in order to avoid the nightmarish possibility of the setting up in. their neighbourhood of the court of Kmg John. In this play the village has already been visited, and has incurred the wrath of the unpleasant monarch ; some of the villagers hear Shakespearean names, so that Dogberry and Gadshill dispute the merits of their beasts, and the bulldozing of the king's messengers is planned by Master Shallow.
The whole episode is set in the frame of a Brains Trust answer. and so is agreeahly begun and ended by the voice of Dr. Joad.
