Trivia & History

The production was videotaped before an audience at the York Playhouse in 1964 by Majestic Productions to be sold for pay TV. No deal was struck and it was left unsold for several years. It eventually turned up on WNDT (New Dimensions in Television), channel 13, in New York, where it was shown at least three times on N.E.T. Playhouse — on January 6, 1967 (at 8 p.m.), with repeats on January 10 and January 12 (both at 11 p.m.). 

It seems to have also first been shown in some other cities on January 6, although it may have first turned up later in some cities. It was repeated a number of times in various cities over at least the next seven or eight months. In most other cities, it seems to have been shown on the local WNET station.
