Judge Prowse Presiding, a one man stage play performed by Frank Holden.

Set somewhere in outport Newfoundland in the 1890s, written and first performed in the mid 1980s by Frank Holden, Judge Prowse Presiding brings a vital character and a near-forgotten frontier world back to life.

Daniel Woodley Prowse (1834-1914), police magistrate, journalist, sportsman, historian and champion of the common man, was a "cross between Dr Samuel Johnson and Falstaff." As he rails at both plaintiffs and felons in his jokes and yarns he revives the excitement and the agonies of his time.

“It's title may be dry, but Frank Holden's one-man play is as colorful as can be, an absolute delight with no small measure of wit and a tour-de-force performance.”– Times Colonist, Victoria, B.C.

Physical: CD; run time approx. 72 minutes
