Who Goes Bare?
“There is dire confusion over whether the country mansion in which the play is set is a health farm or nudist camp. The play is a midsummer romp in which the chasing in and around the house is sustained at such a pace that there is no fear of the ‘topless’ members of the cast showing goose-pimples or, what is more important, the production being dull.” – The Stage, 16th August 1979
In 1981 Askwith, Hayden and Meacher – again directed by Victor Kazan – toured New Zealand in a play, attributed to Hank Bristow, called CONFESSIONS FROM A HEALTH FARM (OR, WHO WENT BARE), alongside such local performers as Jenny Lealand, Anne Dickeson and Sue Jameson.
