Jeremy Page, editor of The Frogmore Papers, saw his play Verrall of the White Hart performed in situ last weekend as part of the Lewes Octoberfeast.
The play, from an idea by John Kenward, tells the story of William Verrall, who brought the excitement of French cuisine to Lewes and to England in the 1750s. He worked at the White Hart, where the play was performed.
