Lorna Bingham, actress and writer, was a long-time member of the George Edwards Players, where she performed and wrote several radio serials, most famously 'Dad and Dave', which she wrote from 1940 until it finished in 1953. She was also renowned in the radio industry for her ability to imitate the voices of children. When the George Edwards Players was sold, Bingham's writing career ended; she found herself unable to adapt to the new medium of television. Bingham committed suicide.
