1972 – “The Governor’s Lady” by David Mercer & “Gallows Humour” by Jack RichardsonPosted on: January 12, 1972
The Governor’s Lady
A liberal ex-Governor’s wife in an African colony spends several days with a gorilla under the impression that it is her dead husband. Her supressed neurotic fears of what is ‘primitive’ or ‘barbaric’ turn out to be a projection into the hallucinated husband of her own ambiguities.

The play is divided in two loosely connected acts, of which only the first was performed by the drama group.
Walter, a former attorney, is about to be executed for murder. While he waits for his turn at the gallows he is allowed to spend time with Lucy – but instead of using his time with her in the way intended by the authorities he tells her all about his life and how it went wrong.
