Notes

Saint Trixie was apparently the first play to be staged by the company to incorporate the word ‘fuck’ into the script. Bizarrely, it is not known to have generated any complaints in 1979, but when the word was used in Alan Ayckbourn’s Virtual Reality 21 years later in 2000, it generated a slew of complaints to the theatre!
Saint Trixie was a late night show produced in the Studio space at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round.
