hroughout World War II, the depth of Soviet spying was unknown. A breakthrough came in 1946 when the United States, working with Britain, broke the code Moscow used to send its telegraph cables. The code-breakers found that, despite being an ally during the war, the Russians had begun an all-out espionage effort to discover military and defense secrets of both countries in the 1940s. In See How They Run, a Russian spy discovered and imprisoned near an American airbase involved in the Berlin Airlift might seem the stuff of fiction, but it is solidly based in the possible. Those vicars, however... - Dorothy Sanders, Dramaturg

Play w r i gh t & D i r e c t o r


PHILIP KING (Playwright) was born in Yorkshire in 1904, and is best known for his 1944 farce, See How They Run. King began his career as an actor with a small touring company in Northern England, graduating to the Repertory Company at the Opera House, Harrogate. There he subsequently directed plays and saw his first comedy, Without the Prince, professionally produced, and shortly after presented in the West End at the Whitehall Theatre. King made several appearances on the London stage, playing with such wellknown stars as Sid Field, Frances Day, and Hugh Wakefield. Despite his success as a writer, he was still drawn to his first love of acting. Of the events surrounding the West End first night of See How They Run, in January 1945, King wrote: “At the time I was in the RAF and, luckily, stationed at the White City, Shepherd’s Bush. During my four years service I had risen from the rank of AC2 (the lowest rank possible) to AC1 (not the highest), but I was fortunate inasmuch as, owing to the shortage of accommodation at White City, I was allowed to ‘live out’ in civilian digs. “By the grace of God the play went like a bomb - even three ‘doodlebugs’ dropped during the performance. George Gee, playing the leading part, swore that all three dropped as he was saying his funniest lines. No one left the theatre until the play was over. “The morning after the ‘first night’ I went down to Shepherd’s Bush, bought every morning paper there was, and went to my usual workmen’s cafe directly opposite RAF White City, and over a pint mug of tea and a Spam sandwich read the notices. “They were marvelous! But, as I read them, I suddenly remembered the pictures I had seen of Noel Coward sitting up in a wonderful looking bed, in an even more wonderful dressing-gown, a silver tray at his side, reading his notices! And here was I...a pint mug of tea and a thick Spam sandwich. But what the hell? I had a success. That’s all that really mattered.”

ROBIN ARMSTRONG (Director, Costume Designer) returns to direct the fourth show of Circle Theatre’s 31st season. Robin most recently directed Circle’s productions - Secrets of a Soccer Mom; Seven in One Blow; Becky’s New Car; and Boeing-Boeing. Robin directed Circle Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Bach at Leipzig, winner of multiple Dallas Critics’ Forum Awards for Outstanding Direction, Outstanding Creative Contribution (for fight choreography and costume design), and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast. Bach at Leipzig was also cited on the “Year in Review Top Ten List” for Dallas Voice, Critical Rant and Rave, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Dallas Observer, Theater Jones and D Magazine. Robin earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Directing from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre from Louisiana State University.
