Programme Note: The Private Ear and The Public Eye

RD wrote: “I was fortunate to be able to enter these two plays in the Southwick Festival where they were both successful. Peter Shaffer, a writer with a keen sense of personality and character, has also the ability to convey humour and pathos in great depth. To present them as a double bill, the original intention of the author, gives me a great deal of pleasure.”
