Scope and Content

Typescript for a finished play, with minor corrections in Mervyn Peake’s hand. Wallington address crossed out and replaced with Drayton Gardens. Undated [but Maeve Gilmore's introductory note in Peake's Progress states 'This play was written for children circa 1960' - see Mervyn Peake, Peake's Progress (London: British Library, 2011), p.383]. See also Add MS 88931/3/8 for epilogue to this play.
