Percy’s Dinner Dilemma was one of three plays written by the English eccentric and playwright Alvin Burford, all based on meals of the day; the other two were “Gertrude’s Boisterous Breakfast” (1906), and “Harland’s Lackluster Lunch” (1910).  Plans for “Mildred’s Stormy Supper” were derailed in 1916 when, in the bottom of a trench, Burford met his end in the Battle of the Somme.  Fragments of the play published by Burford’s estate suggest it would have been a very stormy supper indeed.
