If music be the food of love...

Gill Freeman ( née Wainwright), Class of 1965


Mr Kelk, English master, was a formidable producer of school plays. He was a stickler for the genuine article. Hence - my part in 'The Doll's House' was to play 'Tarantella' on the violin - off stage. I had to be there every night but had an understudy for the one night I was unable to attend.


He, the understudy, was rather nice and came along to see where he had to be - in the wings (with me). I was tired and complained of lack of seating, whereupon, he lifted me on to the grand piano just as Mr Kelk made an appearance.


Quick as lightening Mr Kelk said, "If music be the food of love - sit on it?"
