Home at Seven

This tour, in which Arthur Lowe appeared alongside his wife Joan Cooper, was booked for only six weeks due to Lowe’s TV commitments. On 14th April he suffered a stroke in his dressing room at the Alexandra Theatre, and died the following day. His place was taken by his understudy, Vyvian Hall.
