Famous Five Adventure continues…

Programme for Enid Blyton’s Famous Five Adventure play, 1955
Enid Blyton’s Noddy in Toyland play programme, 1955

The images above were kindly sent through by Tony Summerfield, in response to my previous post – they are the original programmes for the two Enid Blyton plays mentioned previously, from the performances at the Princes Theatre in London.

I have just begun reading the typescript of Famous Five Adventure, which seems to have a great many similarities with Five Have Plenty of Fun, also published in 1955.  Although, somewhat confusingly, Five Have Plenty of Fun centres on a young American girl passing herself off as a boy, and Famous Five Adventure features a young American boy passing himself off as a girl.  While I am enjoying the play, I am having a little trouble keeping it all straight in my head!
