Yes, I’ve added this because I’m childish.
If you don’t know, and I certainly didn’t, ‘Dick’s Fairy’ is actually a story written by Silas Hocking around 1880 called ‘Dick’s Fairy: A Tale of the Street’. It is also a children’s book.
Hocking (1850-1935) was a Cornish novellist and clergyman, who produced many childrens’ novels. His best-known work, ‘Her Benny’, was a best-seller in 1879.
There appears to be no review of the play.
