When We Are Married

A Library Theatre Production

J.B. Prietley’s funniest comedy is being presented by the library theatre company for the first time.
In Henry Ormonroyd, a boozy photographer- the part taken over by Priestley at the St Martin’s Theatre in 1938, owing to the indisposition of its hilerious orginal, frank Pettingell- he has created a classic comic figrue. The Author’s satirical view of the other characters, small town West Riding  folk at the turn of the century, is accurately ruthless and remains pertinent even today. Priestley, a Bradford man, has a true ear for the nuances of his native speech.
The Director, Paul Webster, was also a Bradford man.
