Directed by Evelyn Stoodley


A comedy, set in St John’s Wood, London, focusing on the intrusion of a ghost (the bachelor of the title, a former businessman) into the marriage preparations for a reluctant daughter of the Kilpatrick family.

We have no programme with a price on it but this would have been the first play post-decimalisation (15 February 1971). OK, not terribly relevant.

Cast (in order of appearance):

Barbara Kilpatrick - Penny Duringer
Miss Bowden - Eileen Drew
Isabel Kilpatrick - Kathleen Hill
Serena Kilpatrick - Pam Nash
Blodwen Morgan-Jones - Eileen Heath
Jason Kilpatrick - George Young
Sir William Benedick-Barlow - Sam Heath
