Trivia & History

WHen the production opened, Ian Paterson was credited with playing Sir Henry Wilson and a German Officer, and George Sewell was credited with playing the Kaiser and Sir Douglas Haig. During the run, the German Officer was eliminated from the list of "Principal Roles Played by Male Pierrots" (there was no corresponding list for the Female Pierrots), and Paterson took over the role of the Kaiser, with Sewell continuing as Sir Douglas Haig.
