Further information from a telephone conversation with P.T.Millington following the Radio Nottingham phone-in - Mrs. Ann Pratt, Nuthall.

Taught play by her mother Mrs. Agnes Smith who did the play in Tillicoultry. Mrs. Pratt was aged c.5 years when she performed the play at Nitshill, Glasgow about 1918. They then lived in the Darnley fire station & performed the play at Halloween in the fire houses and in the hospital opposite. Being the youngest, she played the part of the Doctor. Shortly after, the family moved to Eastwood, Notts and tried to continue the custom there, but it did not catch on.

See P.T.Millington Collection for Agnes Smith's text.

Notes recorded by Idwal Jones in his collection incorrectly gives the surname Frett instead of Pratt.
