Notes

General
The cast credits are those taken from the cast of the stage production as cast details for the radio production were not available. It has been assumed that the cast is the same but because the radio version is much shorter some of the roles may have been cut.

Jensen (op cit) notes that Robert Kroll, the adaptor, used the unusual technique of having a narrator introduce a character and then the character speaks a few lines in the actor’s voice. This was done for four characters and the fourth began the play.
History
The stage production ran 22 July-8 September 1968. The radio production was also heard on the Armed Forces Radio Service, Voice of America and Radio Free Europe.
