The Local Stigmatic

by Heathcote Williams

The English Stage Society

Royal Court Theatre, 27 March and 26 June 1966

"The Local Stigmatic" is Heathcote a Williams first play. He was born in 1942. His first book "The Speakers", a documentary account of some of the speakers at Hyde Park Corner, was published in 1964.

The four members of the cast all trained under John Blatchley and Yat Malmgren at the Drama Centre, London. The first production of "The Local Stigmatic" at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh earlier this year was their first professional appearance. Since then, after appearing in the play at the Royal Court in March, Peter Harlowe, William Hoyland and Toby Salaman have been to Holland with the Traverse Theatre Company and Oliver Cotton on tour with Pop Theatre. William Hoyland and Oliver Cotton are shortly to join the National Theatre Company.

The play, which had a very successful presentation at the Royal Court on Sunday, March 27th, is again directed by Peter Gill, who directed "A Collier's Friday Night" last summer and is the author of "The Sleepers' Den" which was given a Sunday performance at the Royal Court in February, 1965.
