Programme Note: The Little Hut

NLR wrote: “The Little Hut – Kitchen Sink, Avant-Garde, Psychodellic [sic]? – none of these things, but a Gay French Romp, and though excellently translated into English by Nancy Mitford, remaining stubbornly French. A very fine example of Good Theatre [I should add, I think] depending equally upon every facet of production, cast, set, props and slick dialogue, giving the back room boys and girls importance equal to those in the front room.

It is about 15 years since I finished a four years’ run of this play. Never once did it flag on me and is still fresh to-day. Alice in Wonderland is ‘grown up’ but still naughty – well, very naughty – but nice.”
