Description:A scene from the Bridgeford Players’ production of Frank Harvey’s comedy ‘The Poltergeist’. Left to right: Cyril Whitehouse, John Bedford, Beryl Whitehouse, Gwyneth Williams, Barbara Macleod and James Farmer.

The Staffordshire Newsletter reported that the Bridgeford Players successfully produced Frank Harvey’s comedy ‘The Poltergeist’ at the Bridgeford Institute recreation room, which held around 100 people. The Newsletter critic described the production as enjoyable and that it was something after the style of ‘Blythe Spirit’ without the subtleties, but with a blunt charm to take its place.

The players were James Farmer, John Bedford, Cyril Whitehouse, Beryl Whitehouse, John Snape, Roddy Macleod, Anne Perrins, Barbara Macleod and Gwyneth Williams. Produced by Alan Whitehouse.
