Lloyd George Knew My Father

Salisbury Studio Theatre - Lloyd George Knew My FatherWritten by: William Douglas Home
Directed by: Alistair Faulkner
Assisted by: Jackie Pilkington
Dates: 5th – 9th Oct 2010

As General Sir William Boothroyd is keen to point out to anyone who will listen to his ramblings ‘ Boothroyd Hall has been in the Boothroyd family since the English Civil War – don’t you know’.   But when a bypass threatens to cut through the grounds of the stately home, it is Lady Boothroyd who decides that dramatic action must be taken to scupper the plans and make the Ministry of Transport see sense.   However, her intended grand gesture turns out to threaten the political career of her son and the tranquility of her dotty family more than the bulldozers!

This ‘feel good’ comedy from the early seventies, and the assured pen of William Douglas Home, will have you chuckling from first to last.
