Notes

Touch Wood & Whistle was a world premiere at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round and loosely inspired by an event two years previously in which the Hermetic Order Of The Silver Blade attempted to buy the derelict Heptonstall Slack Baptist Church in Hebden Bridge to convert to a pagan temple; objections by the local people thwarted the purchase attempt.
