robbins logo 12

A comedy set during the London Blitz of World War II is scheduled to be performed at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, at Robbins Library, 700 Mass. Ave., in Arlington Center. The title is "A Cup of Tea, A Crumpet and a Gas Mask."

In the story, despite harsh wartime conditions, Mrs. Henderson, an upper-class British woman has been keeping one little theater alive in a unique way. Her friend Margaret Rutherford comes to visit, and they discuss matters of the heart and how to make dreams come true. The theme is that to get through difficult times, you need a lot of laughter and a good friend.

The show will feature Lynne Moulton and Fran Baron as Margaret Rutherford and Mrs. Henderson respectively. It was written by and is being staged by the Delvena Theatre Company of Lynn. The play runs approximately 90 minutes.

The play is appropriate for all ages and is free and open to all.

This presentation is supported in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Council and the Friends of Robbins Library.
