Researched by Tony Pazuzu


Canada was late in getting their first staging, and when they did, it was a cheap affair.

Housed in a large theatre, by a newly formed theatre group, as part of a season of 3 plays. The most interesting aspect is the casting of a young Kim Cattrall as Janet, and Brent Carver as Frank.

The show didn't use the original direction, sets or costumes, and ran for only 3 weeks.
