Dirty Work at the Crossroads

Written by Bill Johnson, this typically old fashioned melodrama was performed at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry in March 1970 for a three week run.

In true keeping with the genre, the story centres on the dastardly villain Munro and his pursuit of the innocent country maiden Nellie Lovelove.  Would- be adultery, drink, blackmail and murder all rear their ugly heads with Jeff’s portrayal of the rustic, bumbling and likeable Mookie Maguggins adding to the colourful mix as he eyes up French maid, Fleurette.

Joining Jeff in the cast was Sheila Ferris of Likely Lads fame.
