About this play: [from text on rear of book] 'I try to do right - but somehow it always turns out bloody wrong,' says Ezra plaintively. He has a lovely nature, but his roughness grates on his sensitive son who would rather listen to serious music than down a pint with the boys. Arthur and his bride can only afford to live with Arthur's parents. The lack of privacy is so inhibiting that, six weeks after the wedding, Violet woefully confides that she is still a virgin. The news gets around. Humiliated and furious, Arthur intends to leave Violet, but fortunately his rage destroys his inhibitions. Coming downstairs later, his new confidence allows father and son to reach each other for the first time. All these characters are infused with a robust vernacular humour. Has 4 female and 7 male roles: Lucy Fitton, Arthur's mother; Ezra Fitton, her husband; Geoffrey Fitton, their younger son; Joe Thompson, Arthur's boss; Liz Piper, Violet's mother; Molly Thompson, Joe's wife; Fred Stanfield, Violet's uncle; Arthur Fitton, the bridegroom, Geoffrey's elder brother; Eddie Taylor; Violet Fitton, the bride; and Leslie Piper, Violet's Father.

...I recently visited Bolton Abbey in North Yorkshire during a day trip to Skipton. I've always known of its existence but I was never actually too sure exactly whereabouts it was. However whilst en route to Skipton I spotted a sign and decided that if I had enough time that I would pay it a visit.
The nearest village to Bolton Abbey is Bolton Bridge, which is about 6 miles (9 kilometres to...
Advantages: Local news, for local people Disadvantages: It helps to have the life outlook of Genghis Khan
...for a bit in the 1630s (and boy, do they hype that up to the max): the fact remains that he didn't kill anyone during that period, and even if he did they didn't have remotely the public profile of King Charles I. To this day, major news events aren't one of the area's principal exports...in fact, one suspects that without the ghastly tragedy of the Soham murders in 2002, the rest of the nation could...

...If Ring magazine is the world champion of boxing magazine it's big European rival is British based Boxing News that is now celebrating it's 100th year in production. It's currently a weekly magazine (though it's a registered paper) priced at £2.80 and released on a Friday ever week.
