Old Father Time

Cast of Old Father Time

Players’ Timely Musical Romp

Time played some strange tricks at St. George’s Hall during The Guild Players musical production Old Father Time. Sometimes moving forward sometimes backward, time was made occasionally to stand still, freezing the players and stopping the ticking of Big Ben. A great leap backward in time landed us in the Stone Age, among primitive men and a happily friendly dinosaur. On their return to the present the time travellers, owing to some miscalculation by Old Father Time, were temporarily delayed in the year 1605, where they found themselves involved in The Gunpowder Plot! All this was part of a jolly romp of a play, in which the mostly youthful audiences took part, almost raising the roof in their enthusiasm. A large cast of about 20 splendidly directed by Kath Thomson included some members of The Junior Guild.
