Albert Timms in Lark Rise by Keith Dewhurst for the Dulwich Players at St. Barnabas Church, Dulwich Village. Directed by Jill Alexander. October 1985.
Two things stand out for me about this production: we did it in St Barnabas Church as a kind of Harvest Festival kind of thing, and we did it in the round. Other than that, I can't remember too much about it. It was quite fun to do, especially as my wife was in it too, playing my wife.
The sad thing was the church burned down a few years later in 1992, a deliberate case of arson. There was essentially nothing left of it and of where we acted.
