Cast

Synopsis: 

 

Pamela Hall, head girl at a girls' school in South Africa, falls from favour when it is discovered that her grandfather was coloured. Expulsions and libel follow as racist opinions get out of control.

 

BHTC NOTES: Sheila Wells (playing the role of Caroline Haley), remembers that the cast rehearsed the play in the director's garage and they all had great fun trying to get realistic South African accents for their parts!

 


 

Production Date:  October 1969
