Marlowe, who had played the lead in "Summer and Smoke", got really
creative and wrote a play specially for us. He adapted a short story by Leonid
Andreyev -- a sombre tale of capital punishment called The Seven Who

Frank Evans and Dickie Gaskell were married and, again, they did all the legwork.
We were a SENSATION at Edinburgh that year -- and mostly not because of our
theatrical talent, although that was noted. See below. I was REALLY chuffed
about the New Statesman review.
