This production was staged in the Clarendon Arms, Kenlworth

This was the last production at the outside venues. For the next 12 months all energy was devoted to the building of the new theatre which opened in February 1969.
The Clarendon Arms 'upper room' had served as the meeting place for the Order of the Buffaloes. Its Talisman years (room for a full house of 50!) was, in Harry Lord's words, 'the first pub theatre'. The room was subsequently used for functions.
The Cathedral's 'Porch Plays' were a sixties feature and instrumental in keeping a nucleus of Talismen and women together during the exodus. Many Coventry actors came across to the new theatre in 1969.
