Treading The Boards: Matthew Waterhouse in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Here's a piece of theatrical ephemera I found in Tenby a few years ago...

A programme for Matthew Waterhouse's one-man show The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn performed at The Duke's Head Theatre Club, The Vineyard, Richmond, Surrey, very simple in been a folded piece of photocopied paper but containing details of cast and director the actor Murray Melvin.

Matthew is probably best remembered for his role as Adric in Doctor Who which he played from 1980 to 1982.

More recently, Matthew released his memoir Blue Box Boy.

I'm not entirely certain which year this particular programme originates from.

The dates on the programme are from October 24th to November 13th and imply the performances are from Tuesday to Sunday.

The programme also features a yellow insert flyer for a performance of John Godber's Shakers at the same venue. Laura Fielding, Heather Gillespie, Desne Gobie and Joceline Powter are named as the performers.

Shakers ran from Nov 15 to Dec 4 with a preview on November 14.

If anyone can shed any light on the year this programme originates, I'd love to hear from you.
