"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.
