Observations

  1. On 1st December 2011 at 4:17 p.m., Frank Adams noted:

    After seeing this production I persuaded Lusaka Theatre Club in Zambia to mount a production in 1970. Atahuallpa was played by a Zambian dancer named Edwin Manda. The great sun was built by Mike Jackson based on my descriptions of the NT production sun. I played Young Martin Ruiz.

  3. On 2nd February 2015 at 1:21 p.m., Avondale noted:

    It was a remarkable production. After its week run (normal for Lusaka) a special performance was requested by President Kenneth Kaunda, and attended by him and guests. I remember Frank Adams, who played Young Martin, while I was Old Martin the play’s narrator. The part of Pizzarro was played by Alan Simmance. It was the first Lusaka Theatre Club production that I remember to have been truly multi-racial.
