Programme Note
Hugo Cole Statute For The Mayor (1954)
SYNOPSIS

A town is dominated by a pompous mayor, whose latest plan is to have a statue of himself erected in the market place. This news and an announcement of a competition for sculptors to submit plans for the statue, is given by the town crier; the market-women are in despair. The competition is judged by the mayor himself, assisted by a motley collection of municipal workers. The winner is a mysterious stranger – the only artist to produce a design flattering enough to satisfy the mayor’s vanity. However the stranger proves to be an ally of the flower-girl and the fruit-women.
