Most of them died, but they managed to stop it spreading. It's a powerful story but I don't know anything about the play.There is a dance scene which needs a fiddler. If you're interested, please contact Jill Hewer direct (01273 844208, dandjmhewer_at_tiscali_dot_co_dot_uk She asked me to forward her enquiry.ValmaiIn a message dated 03/03/2010 14:49:05 GMT Standard Time, dandjmhewer_at_tiscali_dot_co_dot_uk writes:
Thank you so much for doing this for me.
The play is ‘The Roses of Eyam’ by Don ~Taylor directed by Angela Reid for Henfield Theatre Company ( an amateur group with a good reputation)
The true story of when the plague arrived in a Derbyshire village in 1666.
Production dates 7 – 10th July plus two dress rehearsals – probably the 5 and 6th July.
It will be performed in St. Peter’s church and churchyard at Henfield.
It will entail playing for a country dance fairly near the beginning of the play. The fiddler will be in costume (supplied).
Expenses will be paid.
Very many thanks
