You may be interested to know what shows the Marlborough has produced since the Club was founded in 1904. Mark Watson-Lee has been busy compiling a list of all the productions which can now be found by clicking here, (or see the article 'Previous shows from 1905' in the 'SHOWS' menu).

100 years ago, our predecessors put on three plays a year and the next show due (in October 1921) would be 'Billeted' by F. Tennyson Jesse & H.M Harwood. It is a comedy in three acts, where a neighbour has told a woman, whose husband is missing in the First World War, that it is improper for her to have a male lodger. She fakes a telegram announcing her husband's death, but, he returns -- as the adjutant (administrative assistant) of the officer lodging with her!
