‘The programme for the first meeting of the Bath Playgoers’ Society, in 1921, provided for a visit from the kindred organisation at Bristol, whose members have from the first taken a warm interest in the doings of the younger society in this city. The play selected for reading was Arnold Bennett’s three-act comedy, “The Title.” The cast was: Mr. Culver, Mr. G. W. Boyd; Mrs Culver, Mrs. Welch; Hildegarde and John Culver (their children), Miss Welch and Mr. S. Gedye; Tranto, Mr. J. F. Holloway; Sampson Straight, Mr. R. H. Russell; and Miss Starkey, Miss Ostler.
