Not “just” William – but two Williams! We are delighted to present, together for the first time on any stage, the two oldest surviving actors to have portrayed Richmal Crompton’s immortal schoolboy hero: radio’s first William, John Clark; together with William Graham, star of Just William’s Luck (1947) and William Comes to Town (1948). Join us for an evening of memories and conversation, hosted by David McGillivray.
