Farnsfield, Notts: Letter from Mrs Olifent 22/2/81 [with text of Plough Monday play]
I.T.Jones Collection, Communicated 22nd Feb.1981, Ref.K7-3

Letter from Mrs. Olifent, enclosing a copy of the text of the Farnsfield Plough Monday play which she had typed out from hand written notes in the possession of the late Mr. Richard Emmons. He had told her that he had written down as much as he could remember when he realised that the play was in danger of being lost. He saw the Residents Association perform the play in 1978 and confirmed that it was as he recalled it from previously. Mrs Olifent thinks the play was last performed between the wars.
