Pre war plays

The plays written by Eleanor Reynolds whic were the mainstay of the group from their birth until the Second World War.

Eleanor was a prolific playwright from the 1930s onwards.
Derrick, her son, said: “My father died in 1948 when I was 16, so she probably started writing to supplement the family income.”
“In those days we attended Millbridge Methodist Church and the plays would be performed there first.”

Derrick still has letters from societies in Clevelys, Blackpool, Barnsley, Holmfirth, Rossendale and North Wales wanting to buy the scripts.
