* Thespis Workshop is directed by Peggy McKerchar, Fabian E. de P. Worsfield and Walter Hix and has the object of presenting new and unusual plays. The Group differs from other Societies in that it has no set programme of productions, and maintains only a small nucleus of experienced players, inviting ‘guest artists’ to meet the casting needs of particular productions. This production has three characters; parts played by the three above.
