Sybil Parr

When Sybil joined the society she was immediately spotted by reviewers. Here is an extract from a local paper review of ‘Present Laughter’ – Sybil’s debut for the society:

“A newcomer to the Society is Sybil Parr, and a very useful on she is. She was playing the part of Joanne, the alluring, seductive wife of Henry Lypiatt one of Garry’s business colleagues.”

Sybil was certainly a hit in the 1964 production of Pillar to Post and this review, from the Redditch Indicator (27/3/1964), explains why:

“All, that is, with the exception of Sybil Parr as Sonya. We did not see much of her with regard to the length of her part – but literally we saw quite a lot of her, stripped down to bra and panties after a drink had been spilled over her dress. Last time she was the “dish” who wanted information, and with acting like that you could not help but give it her. She was superb in the whole of her performance – even down to “knocking back” a pint in seconds.”

The image of Sybil is of her dressed as Lady Julia Merton for the 1973 production of Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime.
