Saturday April 5
A week before the first performance, tickets for the Spiritual Revue were selling well and there was a promise of a full house and an invitation to take the show to a big venue in Middlethumpton that did not belong to Mr Cobblethwaite and the town hall.
But when everything is really going well, something untoward usually happens, at least, that’s what Dorothy maintains and that would include the Revue, starting with the cast throwing out the stage director. That had been an omen, Dorothy had said. Cleo told her she was calling up devils with that sort of talk, but Dorothy was sure something was going to happen.
