The Camel’s Back
Exeter Drama Company’s first play of 2024 is a comedy. The Camel’s Back is written by Arnold Helsby and directed by Robin Thwaites.
Mr Hannacott, the owner of the farm, has recently died and his will aims to secure the future of his family and ensure the farm is managed efficiently. To this end he insists that his sister Prudence, a spinster, should bring her business acumen to the farm. However, running a farm is very different to running a successful draper’s shop, and her methods are not always welcomed by the family, the farm staff or the villagers. A production of an amateur play in the village leads to further problems on the farm as well and has everyone wondering how to get rid of Prudence!
