Hinge and Bracket


Dr Evadne Hinge and Dame Hilda Bracket were the stage names of George Logan and Patrick Fyffe respectively. The characters of Hinge (somewhat brittle and acerbic) and Bracket (more flamboyant) were elderly, intellectual, female musicians; in these personae the male Logan and Fyffe played and sang songs to comic effect.

A genteel English inter-war world of cucumber sandwiches, bell ringing, church fetes and old-fashioned values was recalled through the act, although their work was frequently decorated with double entendres.
