Met Robernt Lyndsay & David Jansen at the rear of theater ..I was only about 10 at the time and had to borrow their pen to get their autographs….
Saw this on, what I believe might have been, the opening night in Torquay in 1977. I remember there being an incredible amount of scene changes and often the stage lights would fade up just as stage hands were hurriedly moving props from the previous scene. However, it didn’t detract from the performance or my enjoyment of the production.
