Kit Bartlett wrote:Some time ago I wrote an article for The Blue on House Plays. I had trawled through my back numbers of the magazine and wrote down all the House plays mentioned and reviewed in The Blue from 1928 onwards. The Editor at the time was not for reasons of space able to print it in full but did a summary of the various types of play performed.

Coleridge B "The Monkey's Paw",
A great favourite of Kit Aitken incidentally,
Barnes "Alice in Wonderland" .

Some of these plays were a trifle ambitious to have been performed on such a small stage.

That title rings a massive bell with me and I'm almost certain it's the one I was in which I mentioned earlier !
John Rutley. Prep B & Coleridge B. 1958-1963.
