TITLE: IT'S A TWO-FOOT-SIX-INCHES ABOVE THE GROUND WORLD
FORMAT: 20 x 12.5 inches
VENUE: WYNDHAM'S theatre, London.
PRODUCTION CREDITS: Prunella Scales, Stephen Moore, Angharad Rees, Christopher Hancock, Antony Webb, Ralph Arliss. Directed by Val May.
NOTES: Transferred to The Wyndhams THEATRE from The Bristol Old Vic. Kevin Laffan is best known for creating the ITV soap OPERA Emmerdale Farm. His play It's a Two Foot Six Inches Above the Ground World portrays an Irish Catholic family's family planning problems. Irving Wardle in the Los Angeles Times in 1970 called it "comedy that is clearly rooted in pain"; the New York Times in 2010 called it "potty-mouthed". It carried the warning: "It may not be for those who could find a frank discussion of sexual and religious matters not to their taste." It was a West End hit and was made into a film in 1972.
CONDITION: Grade A. Rolled (but has been stored flat since new). Fine.
