Robin Langford is wonderful!!! Where is he now? He is right here, right now. It is so good to see that this is on the Internet and available. I would never have found it otherwise. Well done researchers!! And thank you!! All the cast were so wonderful and the director Rex Tucker, a very kind, wise and a very understanding director who alas has passed on. It was a privilege to do this production, and incredibly lucky to get the role, for it led onto other parts which I would possible have never got. I am most grateful. I remember this production with such fond memories. Thank you to Rex Tucker and all the cast. Best wishes, Robin
