A Tribute to the works of Frank Muir and Denis Norden.
Fylde Coast Players, with the kind permission of the families of the late great Frank Muir and Denis Norden are delighted to present “The Glums”- a tribute to the works of Frank Muir and Denis Norden. This will be presented as a radio show, taking you back to the 1950s.
“The Glums” featured Pa Glum (Jimmy Edwards), a boozy old twister living in his house with his dimwit son Ron. Ron’s almost permanent visitor was his fiancée Eth (June Whitfield), a dotty, ditzy slip of a girl, terminally in love with the dopey Ron (Dick Bentley) and determined at all costs to steal him away from the bonds that tied him to Pa. Ma Glum (voiced by Alma Cogan) was never met but was occasionally heard squawking in the background. Each story began with Pa in the pub discussing events with Ted (Wallace Eaton) the landlord, which then cut to the sofa of the Glums. We will be performing Bath Night, from 1957 and Ron Joins the Police from 1958.
