Barely Proper


A radio-play adaptation of Barely Proper by Tom Cushing recorded at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park on August 4, 2011 during the Naturist Festival. Originally published in 1931 and subtitled "an unplayable play", Barely Proper was extensively performed in nudist/naturist clubs in the 1960's and 1970's and served as an introduction and fundraiser for them.
