Programme Note #1: The Killing of Sister George

PH wrote: “Whether it be the American Dallas, the Australian Neighbours or our own Coronation Street, long running ‘soaps’ are now a fact of life.

For some people, the characters, like ‘George’ step out of the realms of fantasy and become real.

Like Chaplin’s films, this play shows how comedy and pathos walk hand in hand.”
