Such a hit in early 1982 that it had a return season later in the year, was The Queensland Game, devised by the director Sean Mee and the cast (Chris Burns, Kym Lynch, Maggie Nevins, Tony Phelan and David Pyle with band members Sean Mee, David Pyle and Chris Willems). Critic Jeremy Ridgman commented in his March 1982 review : “If Malcolm Blaylock, La Boite’s Artistic Director, is committed to steering the company in the direction of community theatre then The Queensland Game might well be a taste of future delights”.

Designed the poster for this fact I think I did most of the 1982 ones (under the name of The Rough & Ready ART Co.) I have them all if you need images of any.
