Dear Ralph
Could you see your way to take an ordinary rank and file engagement as Viola (not principal) "St. John" Passion, Dorking Church, Saturday evening February 25th, rehearsal 2.15 - fee £2.15/- and fare.
This is nothing to do with the Festival1 and is a small private show.
I do hope you can come.
My love to Gillian & family
Yrs RVW
