Notes dir. Graeme Hughes Farrago 7/7/61 p.1. – Article about two female university students who played prostitutes in this production and spent a Saturday night on the streets of St Kilda to gain a sense of the atmosphere in preparing for their parts; further article in Farrago 13/7/61 p.1. – teh women who posed as prostitutes are to be sent down from Women’s College. The “Truth” newspaper covered the scandal – p.3. as did the “Sun” and ABC radio. A further scandal erupted because Kepler was American and American diplomats were concerned about her appearing in a play written by a Communist.
