Wombwell Thespians – “Robina in Search of a Husband.”

February 1928

Mexborough and Swinton Times February 10, 1928

Another new society is the Wombwell Thespians, who are to make their debut nest Wednesday and Thursday with J. K.:Jerome’s four-act farce, “Robina in Search of a Husband.”

Miss Pattie Washington is the producer, and as she has been a “leader” in local musical and dramatic circles for many years.T The Thespians first production is eagerly anticipated in that district, especially as she has gathered round her many talented friends. The production will be made in the Parish Hall, Wombwell, although rather small, is otherwise well adapted for performances of this kind. The performance is something in the nature of an experiment, for it is a long time since such an organisation was in existence at Wombwell.

Miss Washington is also well-known in Mexboro’, for with the old Operatic Society she was the principal soprano in seven of the society’s eight productions.
