The National Health or Nurse Norton’s Affair
Cast & Crew
The correct title of the play is THE NATIONAL HEALTH or NURSE NORTON’S AFFAIR
My father Kenneth Mackintosh played T/O Mackie.
His character I believe spent the play in bed.
He was mortified on one occasion to have fallen asleep during the performance. When it was time to say his line he had to be loudly prompted awake.
He was of course disorientated and fluffed the line.
He recounted this with a sense of excruciating embarrassment!
