Historical Note - the following note appears in the programme:
"A Dispute has arisen between the Mechanical Performing Rights Society and the composer of the special music for this play. As a result we have been forbidden the use of this music and have substituted an alternative which we think you will find evocative and pleasant. It is Shostakovich Opus 105 - Moscow Cheremuskki."
