A Helping Hand


"A Helping Hand" was performed at the Memory Lane Heritage Variety Show on July 25th and 27th by the Eastern Shore Players, as part of the 1940s programme.

This is a 20 minute light comedy set on the Eastern Shore in 1948 and the story is about Dorothy, a young 14 year old girl.  When Dorothy is taken out of school to care for a family whose 40 year old Mother can't cope with the family she already has, let alone a new baby that's on the way, Dorothy is happy to help.  She didn't like school anyway.  But she has a problem, she's very forgetful.
