Tel’s new play

Posted: October 5th, 2016

FORMER Daily Mirror industrial editor Terry Pattinson has written another play, this time a comedy about life in old Fleet Street.

The play was performed over two nights by Manor Players, of Lower Sunbury, near Shepperton, Middlesex, on September 16 and 17.

Called The Indispensable Man, the play is based on editors,  journalists, secretaries and executives Terry met during his 28 years in Manchester and Fleet Street while working for the old Sun (pre-Murdoch), the Daily Express and the Daily Mirror.

He said: “All the characters I knew came to life on stage but I had to change the names to protect the guilty. The actors did a terrific job.”

The play has been entered for the Spelthorne and Runnymede Drama Festival, to be held at the Riverside Arts Centre, Thames Street, Lower Sunbury, in mid-October.
