Richmond Park

Skit Synopsis

Dedicated to the Museum of Richmond, England

Summary: John Lewis (1713-1792), a commoner, basically won a court case against a princess that led to a limited pedestrian right of way through Richmond Park. He established the idea of public access.

In this skit, three boys find out they can walk through a park that had previously been reserved only for royalty.  But how exactly can they do that?

This skit (like all others) includes fascinating background information.
