From BNT newsletter August 1968

We hope to see you at Under the Sycamore Tree. This is our next production, and it will be staged 6th to 14th September. The charity night, 6th September, is being given for the Girl Guide Association.

Maria Bacsak is the producer of this very unusual play. When we tell you that two of the leading characters are ants, you will realise that it is – well, at our Committee Meeting we discussed carious ways of describing it – and I think we finally agreed that comedy fantasy was the most apt description: come and decide for yourself.

 

From BNT newsletter September 1968

This very difficult play has just completed its season. Audience participation was not good, and it is hoped that our December production will prove to be popular with out patrons. A number of new players were in this production, and we hope that this taste of theatre will bring them back to take part in another play.
