Subject: The Alabaster Plaster Caster
From: Sooz

This is a long shot, but the Mudcat hasn't failed me before! A friend of mine is looking for a monologue called the Alabaster Plaster Caster which he thinks is by Jack Warner (Dixon of Dock Green for those old enough to remember). Can anyone help?

Happy to oblige! Dixon of Dock Green actually goes back to 1955 does that disturb you even more Spaw?

The last time I heard this was in 1966. Sorry I can't remember much, if any. The only bit that stuck was (I think) there was much play on the rhyme, culminating in "The Alabaster Plaster Caster's Bastard". Don't even know if it was the real version or a spoof!

Someone somewhere did know.
This was obtained from Paul Wilkinson's "Make 'Em Laugh" site Click here a great site for music hall monologues and songs

A CASTER UP OF ALABASTER PLASTER

by Jack Warner

Now there's a plaster molders yard about a mile from here
Where my old Uncle Teddy has a job that may sound queer
It really is quite different to what other people do
But it really is a clever job, I'm not kidding you.

'Cos 'e's a caster up of alabaster plaster
He's an alabaster plaster caster, see
And 'e doesn't mix with water common powder into mortar
For an alabaster plasterer is 'e.

Now if 'e were merely mixing for cementing
'E would stir it in a mixer, as of old
But to prove he's caster master, casts 'is plaster alabaster
In an alabaster plaster caster's mold.

Many thanks, Kenny B. It wasn't on monologues.co.uk when I looked it must be a new addition. Unfortunately it isn't complete! There should be about 5 minutes worth.

I feel I need to defend my 'onour, Sooz... The above version of 'A Caster of Alabaster Plaster' is actually complete... But comes from a routine performed by Jack Warner which included several 'funny occupations' e.g. 'Bunger Up o' Rat 'oles', 'A Fumper and Flattener of Fevvers' and 'The Turkish Bath Attendant'. Each was introduced with a few lines of chat and would, as you state, run to about five minutes. I shall be adding 'The Turkish Bath Attendant' to my site soon.

Paul.

I seem to remember John Foreman - aka the Broadsheet King -doing this in his act around the folk clubs in the 1970s
