A Miracle Play in four scenes by Bernard Walke
Characters
Mary Tregenza , the bride Her Mother Her Father
Sarah Jane 1
Daft Willie neighbours William Henry
Silas Penberthy
John Trevorrow , the bridegroom
Voices of those who have died in the Parish during the year, priest, choir, bell-ringers, and villagers
Scene 1 : Dressing the bride
Scene 2 : Outside the church during the wedding
Scene 3 : The home of bride and bridegroom
Scene 4 : The church at night
Produced by Bernard Walke
This is the first announcement of a St. Hilary play to be printed without the familiar line ' Directed by Filson Young '. His death last April robbed broadcasting of one of its outstanding figures. His belief in the broadcasting possibilities of the sincerity and devotion of the St. Hilary Players first led him to bring them to the microphone. For many years he and Bernard Walke have together produced these moving Cornish miracle plays. Tonight, under Bernard Walke 's production, the performance will follow the lines, now almost a tradition, laid down by him and Filson Young.
(From West of England)
