     An interesting thing about this one act play is that it was actually put together to enter the East Kootenay Zone Festival only.  Unfortunately CCT was the only entry that year (which was quite unusual) and so Festival was cancelled.  All prepared with no place to go,  the Director, Producer, Cast and Crew decided to mount the show for 1 night only here in Cranbrook, instead.   It was a CCT production on the Mt. Baker Secondary School stage.
