"Meeting held at 22, Cintra Avenue: 14.5.35<br/> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Francis E. Pollard in the Chair<br/> 1. Minutes of last read + approved.<br/> <br/> [...]<br/> <br/> 4. We then read Badger’s Green. Mrs. Goadby and Reginald Robson had allotted the parts as follows:&mdash;<br/> Doctor Wetherby&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;F. E. Pollard <br/> Major Forrester&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;R. H. Robson <br/> Mr. Twigg&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;V. W. Alexander <br/> Mr. Butler&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;E. B. Castle <br/> Mr. Rogers&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;H. R. Smith <br/> Dickie [Wetherby]&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;E. Mary Reynolds <br/> Mrs. Wetherby&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Elisabeth Alexander <br/> Major Forrester&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Mary Pollard <br/> Mr. Butler’s Secretary&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Dorothy K. Goadby <br/> Mary&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Mary Robson<br/><br/> The reading was very good fun. The well meaning self importance of Dr. Wetherby & Major Forrester, & the much doubted organizing ability of their respective wives provided the setting of local jealousy + futility in which the skill and tact of Mr. Butler + his Secretary showed up well. The secret passion of Mr. Twigg for entomology + fretwork and the breezy heartiness of Dickie provided some comic moments, while the thick pated, bucolic characters &mdash; Mr. Rogers + Mary &mdash; grounded the play firmly in its village simplicity."
