CORNITH HOUSE (1st BHTC Production)



With a cheap Kensington boarding house as the locale, the play introduces a retired head mistress, and her former pupil, whose obsession with a school time incident breeds within her a hysterical hatred of the mistress. 


The two work out their destiny in an atmosphere of mystery, against the mediocre background of their fellow residents.

This production was entered into the Sussex Rural Community Council's Drama Festival and was well received (see attached review)
