Plays Directory : Spring And Port Wine

The information below is intended to give you a brief guide to the show and highlight some of the other The Mandy Network members who have also been involved in this show.

  • Author
    Bill Naughton
  • Written
    1965
  • Setting
    Contemporary Bolton
  • Overview
    The story is set in the Northern English town of Bolton and concerns the Crompton family, and in particular the father, Rafe, and his attempts to assert his authority in the household as his children grow up.

    The play was filmed in 1969 - produced, once again, by Michael Medwin - and the result is a valuable time-capsule in that it depicts a Bolton of large, long-gone chimneys. Other parts of the film show street scenes and wide shots of the town as it was at the time of filming, now very much changed. It was filmed as St. Peters Way was being constructed and whilst many of the old industrial buildings remained. The lives depicted are very real for the period and this film captures an industrial town in transformation.
