Commentaires : Based on the Reg Smythe cartoon characters as featured in the “Daily Mirror”, the show had a gritty reality which didn’t sit too comfortably with its musical format, and an underlying bleakness with its portrait of poverty, unemployment, disillusion, and an irreconcilability between the male and female points of view. For most of the critics the verdict was - it didn’t work. However, “Plays and Players” gave it their Best New Musical of the Year Award!
