(Traditional)
Mr. DENIS FREEMAN and his SUSSEX PLAYERS
THE old traditional Mummers Ploy, of whiah modern Christmas carol-singing is only a pathetic survival, still nourishes in certain parts of the English countryside, notably in Sussex. Mr. Denis Freeman runs a theatre there. in an old barn built out of Armada wreckage. and in it the local people act their traditional plays. This evening he- is bringing a company of them up to the Studio, where they will give a programme of genuine, native, unadulterated old English carols and mumming plays, as they are performed on frosty evenings, when the ' Sussex moon, untravelled still,' looks down on the wide spaces of the Downs.

THIS is a new and unpublished story that Mr. Coppard has written specially for this occasion. One of the most brilliant of the younger writers who find their inspiration in the life of the countryside, he is the author of ' Adam and Eve and Pinch Me,' ' The Black Dog,' 'Fishmonger's Fiddle,' and 'The Field of Mustard, and he contributes short stories to some of the most distinguished periodicals in England and in the United States.
