Title

Aunt Bessie Beats the Band, The Grange Players, May 13, 1941

Description

A play put on by the Grange Players held at the Grange hall on Granby Road, Granville, Massachusetts on May 13, 1941.

The players are listed as Avis(?) no last name; Frisbie (no first name); Mrs. Frisbie; Dickinson; Milton Hansen; Milo (no last name); and Herbert Hiers.

Described in the synopsis as a "mirthquake" the reaction of the audience and critics seems to have been lost in history.

The year 1941 stands out as a turning point in history. One can imagine how much people needed a distraction from the war in Europe, and what the war might mean to the United States, By the end of 1941 that question would be answered. But on the 13th of May, 1941 the people of Granville could still hope for peace and enjoy a play at the local Grange.
