Woman of Straw

Adapted by Ian Cullen from Catherine Arley’s 1954 novel LA FEMME DE PAILLE (filmed in 1963 with Sean Connery, Gina Lollobrigida and Ralph Richardson).

This production’s UK dates were followed by a five-city tour of South America.

Reportedly, this was the first time a commercial company received a ‘presented by’ credit on a theatre production.

For pre-production plans, see Peter Hepple, ‘Caledonian pilots play backing scheme’, The Stage 30th November 1978 (page 1).

For “disappointed” post-production quotes from Trip Productions’ Tony Rudlin and British Caledonian’s publicity officer Ron Hill, see Barry Baker, ‘They can do it for golf … but not for theatre’, The Stage 30th August 1979 (page 10).
