1937, Worthing School of Dramatic Art

6th November 1937

Worthing Herald

This newspaper clipping is very unusual in that it is a photograph, and it shows a scene from one of Irene Mawer’s mime plays – but she is not in it.  The play was put on by the Worthing School of Dramatic Art, who presumably bought the rights to perform the play for their amateur drama club.

The Marriage of Columbine was included in Mawer’s book Twelve Mime Plays and was considered to be the best of all the twelve.
