Another James Tanner musical comedy was 1928’s production. Prudence, the The Quaker Girl of the title, is cast out after drinking a glass of prohibited champagne. Later on, in Paris, her plain grey clothing becomes the height of fashion. This three-act show enjoyed a successful West End run and countless revivals by amateur operatic groups up to the 1990s.
The Hebden Bridge Light Opera Society put on a further production of The Quaker Girl in 1949.
