Playing to a packed house at the Gorway Campus of the University of Wolverhampton on the 18th May the play, written by local playwright David Calcutt and performed by local residents, was welcomed by outgoing Mayor of Walsall, Councillor Dennis Anson. The performance brought to an end the full cycle of four Mummer’s plays which have played to audiences in Walsall Marketplace, Bookmark Bloxwich as well as The Performance Hub at Gorway Campus.
