Gay’s The Word

At the Manchester try out the part of the Stage Door Keeper was played by William Clifford and John Wynyard was playing Old Man. By the time the show reached London John Wynyard was playing the Stage Door Keeper and the Old Man seems to have disappeared.

For the post London tour nearly all the original cast played their original parts. May Tomlin took over the part of Madame Nicolini and her part of Mrs Parkes was taken on by Margot Bryant in addition to her part as Lancashire Woman.

A new character called Ray Hartley, played by Frank Forsyth, seems to have appeared for the tour.
