Notes

This play for children has frequently been misattributed as a world premiere for the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round. However, the play was commissioned by and for the EMMA Theatre Company for its winter 1977 tour, before being staged in a separate production in Scarborough soon after its world premiere.
