Notes

Easter had originally been produced for the Studio Theatre’s recent winter tour - which also Harold Pinter’s included The Birthday Party. It was then revived - briefly - at the Library Theatre during the summer season.
Easter was the only play presented for just a week during the summer 1959 season at the Library Theatre.
This was Peter Watt's translation of Strindberg's play.
Easter was presented without an interval.
