Can you help us complete the Who’s Who in this photograph by Ida Kar? It shows a group of actors rehearsing at the Theatre Royal Stratford in 1959 for the Cockney musical comedy Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'Be. Standing to the right is Frank Norman who wrote the play; seated beside him is Dudley Sutton who died last week. We think the actor standing in the middle looking down is James Booth, but who is the actor between him and Yootha Joyce? Finally, who is the man with glasses on the left – could this be Lionel Bart, who wrote the music for Norman’s play?
