Notes on visit to Mr Jack Smith, a retired teacher in his late 60's. In the 1950's he collected a version of the Blidworth play from Bill Godfrey for a schools exhibition in Mansfield Woodhouse. The play was performed up to the 1940's. In 1980 the play was put on in the Methodist Church in Blidworth with men mainly in their 60's who had done the play in their youth. The play was basically that collected from Mr. Godfrey with additions from the performers. Mr Smith gave me a tape of a Radio Nottingham interview for 1980, a copy of their script and a copy of A.H. (1926) with annotations.
