Notes

General
The production used Kabuki techniques.
History
The production, heavily abridged at some 80 minutes, played in a double bill with The Comedy of Errors, similarly abridged. The Festival Director, John Neville, believed that there were interesting parallels to be drawn in seeing the two plays performed together in the same evening.
