Lays from the Plays


WT wrote musical operettas for performance by his church family at Bucks Road Methodist Church, Douglas, and also a number for performance at the schools where he was headteacher: Foxdale and Victoria Road Schools. The poems in the collection ‘Lays from the Plays’ were song lyrics from the operettas published in the Manx Weekly Times throughout 1963, when they would have been recognised and remembered by the individuals who had enjoyed performing them. Not all the lyrics from each operettas are shown here, just the ones that appeared in the paper.
