|Reviews||Beatrice Faust, “The Season of the Absurd in Review” in “Theatre” (1963) no.4.: “poorly acted”, “played too heavily, and the incongruities and unexpected contradictions seemed at best, confusing, at worst irritating: Max Gillies’ production was ironically humourless”, “the setting and the costumes were similarly uninspired, and although the angled stage gave signs of becoming a correlative of Taranne’s unhingement this excellent idea was just not exploited”. Also review in Farrago 17/6/63 p.5. – criticized the production for being dry and humourless.|
|Notes||Part of the 1963 ‘Theatre of the Absurd’ season (see festival entry).|
