Nottingham Playhouse

December 1963 - June 1964

"With the Mayor’s casting-vote in favour, the elected councillors of Nottingham (Robin Hood’s hometown) had spent 300,000 of rate-payers money on Richard Moro’s new theatre replacing the old Playhouse. Frank Dunlop and John Neville transferred thence as joint artistic directors, with Peter Ustinov as their nominal associate. The enterprise was big news and I was thrilled to be a part of it."
