Notes
Herald 31/2/72 Review, Gerald Mayhead: farce & melodrama linking sing-a-longs of 50’s & 60’s hits -no more profound than ‘Dad & Dave’ -great fun Farrago 10/3/72 Review, George Whaley (Dir. of Uni. Theatre): MUST did not aim to extend themselves intellectually with this play. The repertoire includes a play suitable for adults written by David Williamson (“The Coming of Stork”, The Removalist”, etc) in conjunction with group workshops, a children’s play by John Romeril of the Australian Performing Group, and a series of street/beach plays worked up by MUST.

This show went on tour (before Pram Factory season) though when and where are not specified either. It toured with another show “The Magnetic Martian Potato”, which also performed at the Pram Factory on Sat. mornings at 10.30am (dates not specified).
