  1. Water, Water Everywhere in Brighton 1974.
    Have you got any details about this production; I know the quote is from “Rime of the ancient mariner”, a long poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

    • Hi Matt! Sorry for the delay in replying.

      The event you asked about took place at the Pavilion in Brighton, and was a series of readings in different areas of the building – inside and out.

      I hope that helps, and again, I apologise for not getting back to you sooner.

      With Regards,

      Tina
