Footnotes

  • Illustrated: 'Michael English 3D Eye', Paper Tiger, 1979, p.42, from the collection of Michael White, the show's original West End producer, 1970.

    The show caused much controversy at the time as it included scenes of total male and female nudity. The title is taken from a painting by Clovis Trouille, itself a pun on the French expression, 'O quel cul t'as!', and English's piece is based on Trouille's original.
