A dramatised rehearsed reading. The remarkable story of how one of the world's leading economists was instrumental in the birth of Lewes Little Theatre in the years leading up to and during World War II.


The letters between the two men illustrate the local tensions and political undercurrents of the immediate pre-war years and the struggles of Rawlings and others to find a home for his real love, Lewes Players. The dramatisation by Des McAleer and Mick Hawksworth edited by Sarah Bayliss based on an original article by Paul Myles. Readers will include the production group joined by Julian Bell and Kathy Myles.
