Item details

Tommy Boyle, thinking his father has died, persuades Dan Murphy to impersonate the dead man for the purpose of making a will. After a hurried make-up, Dan jumps into bed and poses as the dying man. The schoolmaster arrives to make the will. Finally, he starts to make a new will, but old Andy, the supposed dead man, appears on the scene.

This is rollicking comedy in Ulster dialect at its raciest, but is playable in any dialect. The play won three trophies and gained first place for Scotland in the S.C.D.A. festival of 1948.
