A Celebration of 60s Drama

A quartet of plays from the 1960s starts tonight at the New Theatre,

Last year, the Creative Cow company had a big success with Peter Shaffer's one-act plays, The Private Ear and The Public Eye, and this spring with Harold Pinter's comedy The Lover.

These three classics will be performed in repertory with a new production of the comedy The Knack, by local writer Ann Jellicoe, which was a big hit at London's Royal Court Theatre in 1962 and later an award-winning film with Michael Crawford and Rita Tushingham.

Tickets cost pounds9 each (pounds10 extra will get you a meal at The Firestone on top) or all four for pounds21 over three evenings.
