    Who exactly is meant to be Errol in picture 1 and 2, please?

      Hi Penny,,
      Picture 1, I think Errol is somewhere far on the left, more or less left in the dark! Perhaps David can enlighten us and throw some light on the subject.
      Picture 2, I guess he is second on the right
      Picture 3, surely he is on the right

      I think we struck gold finding this blast from the past!

        Rory Flynn thinks her father is standing in the dark in picture one, identified him clearly second from the far right in the middle picture and that’s Errol in the cap with rolled up sleeves standing on the right in the last photo. These are extremely rare photos. It’s very hard to locate Errol in these productions.

        Tip o’ the Hat to Don Jan!

          Errol mentions Yellow Sands in MWWW as well. He must have enjoyed that role to have remembered it! One of my first posts was about a lady in Ottawa ON who had played in that production with Errol.

    More than anyone Errol would have fully fathomed those last five lines, perhaps most enjoying and identifying with the third from last:.
