The Welsh Players were started 41 years ago by Gareth & Mavis Gibbs with a few, very few, like minded people interested in CommunityTheatre. In their first year, 1977, they won the prestigious Lord Howard de Walden Trophy for the Best One Act Play performance in the UK. That was in Inverness, Scotland. and over the next 41 years they were to win this British Trophy no less than 4 times!


This is a play that I found here in America many years ago, written by no less than 5 Americans about Bullshot’s adventures in England, he did after all pre-date James Bond, better known as 007! We hope you enjoy this spoof on the 1930’s character called BullDOG Drummond, and remember, you are allowed to LAUGH!
