TB wrote: “I first came across this play over thirty years ago when I played Mark Solstice at New Venture Theatre in Brighton. It has been in the back of my mind for at least 10 years to revive this forgotten gem of a play. Without giving anything away it is very funny but also has its darker moments.

It now has a deserved place in Wick’s 70th Season.”
