Drama Play with music : 'Lumley Mill' by John Bartlett

Lumley Mill by John Bartlett

Cast Size : 37 (Adults & Juveniles) Large Cast Musical Drama
Set in the fields and farms of England circa 1890. John Bartlett's play is a lovingly created look back at those simpler times of shepherds and squires; innocence and indulgence; Morris men, maidens and milk-maids. Using traditional English folk tunes, this play is an unusual, but fascinating glimpse at the social mores and constraints of Victorian agricultural society. The cast list is quite large, so there is ample scope for doubling if necessary, or for involving a large number of actors where this is possible.
