Worzel Gummidge - December 1996

Based on Barbara Euphan Todd's children's classic, well known by television viewers in the 1980's, Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall's version of Worzel Gummidge has all the favourite characters.

Worzel Gummidge - Worzel and Aunt Sally

Brought to life by the Crowman, the naughty yet lovable Worzel creates havoc and farce wherever he goes in his efforts to win Aunt Sally's unwilling hand. Eventually he finds himself before the scarecrow court on a very serious charge.

Worzel Gummidge - various villagers, The Crowman, Aunt Sally, Sergeant Beetroot and Worzel

The final resolution is a happy one with a birthday cake enormous enought to satisfy even Worzel's appetite!
