Mum­mers’ plays

Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

These short plays have en­ter­tained Christ­mas au­di­ences since the 18th cen­tury. Of­ten mimes (‘mum’ means silent), they can still be seen, mostly in coun­try pubs. The plot of a bat­tle be­tween good ver­sus evil ends with a res­ur­rec­tion of the hero by a doc­tor with mys­te­ri­ous po­tions.
