Let’s Be Frank
A revised version of CALL OF THE DODO, originally presented at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham on 5th October 1955.
For its pre-London touring dates in 1963 the play was called THERE’S A YANK CLOSE BEHIND ME. The 1964 reprise at Windsor didn’t credit the original producers but retained the same cast (bar one), most of the crew and all the fixtures and fittings of the West End version.
