A Pin to See the Peepshow
This production, originally scheduled to play for three weeks, was extended due to popular demand, entailing the postponement of a planned revival of THE DEVIL’S DISCIPLE. Because the play, based on the Thompson-Bywaters murder case, was unauthorised by the Lord Chamberlain for commercial presentation in the UK, Joan Miller and her husband Peter Cotes took it to Broadway, with Roger Moore in the cast. It opened and closed at the Playhouse Theatre on the same day – 17th September 1953.
