A photograph of the performance has now turned up but unfortunately it only shows two of the actors. Are there any more photographs in existence?
The picture is of the actual murder committed by the antique dealer of his assistant, and is not for the faint-hearted.
The parts were played by Pat O'Shea and Ronnie Cosens, respectively.
