Notes on a visit to Mrs Morley, 3 Crowpark Drive, Burton Joyce, Notts., by Idwal Jones and Bob Baron. The Plough Monday play was performed in Bulcote in 1953 and they did it on Plough Monday for about 3 years, The Plough Monday dances at which it was performed continued for about 10 years. Mrs Morley had in her possession a script identical to that in the Barley Collection but in a different typeface. She had borrowed it a few days previously from Harold Adams who had played the Fool and who now works at the Corporation Farm, Gunthorpe. Still alive are also Cyril Brookes (Doctor) who lives in the Corporation Cottages in Bulcote, Ted Knight and Brian Mowbray (Lady) who now runs a homosexuals' club in Nottingham.
