  A collection of posters found by workmen demolishing an old theatre in Liverpool from plays at the Royal Court Theatre Wigan, in the 1890's I believe this poster was bought by the then manager of the TURNKEY restaurant in the 1960's and was framed displayed in the restaurant. It was a play titled 'LADY OF HAIGH' telling the story of Mab's Cross. Can anyone remember seeing it in the restaurant? Does anyone know where it is now?

From ‘Wigan and District A Local Record’, (1916) Author Henry Tennyson Folkard, the Borough Librarian . . .
‘Performance of the Lady of Haigh [a drama founded on the legend of Mab’s Cross, by W. Russell] at the Court Theatre, Wigan, July 22 1907’.
Also from the Wigan Chronology in the ‘Stuff’ section of this site - July 22nd 1907: ‘New Play, "The Lady of Haigh," produced at the Royal Court Theatre.’
