Disillusioned by a life spent pursuing pleasure, Count Tiger may find salvation in the purity of a young visitor to his court. Threatened by disruption of the fragile status quo, members of the jaded, sated court are bent on ferreting out and annihilating his innocent savior.
BHTC NOTES: This was an evening of one act plays & sketches performed for the enjoyment of members and patrons and involving some new director and acting debuts.
As explained in the production programme,
the perfomance was just an extract
from the play, as there had been casting
difficulties when it was originally planned
as the clubs spring production. It seems the play
never actually got performed as a full
production, but at least some photographs
were taken to record this performance
