North Waltham Mummers, Hampshire, c. 1949 (Photographer: Douglas Dickins). Mummers’ Plays are a form of traditional drama, usually performed in the streets with a small but varied cast including St. George, the Turk, a doctor, and sometimes Santa Claus. Most mummers’ plays feature a combat scene in which a combatant is wounded or killed and then miraculously revived by the doctor. The costume varies from region to region, but those in Hampshire are known for their “tattered” jackets.
