RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

In a sleepy little Himalayan country the U.S. ambassador, a political appointee, is entertaining an antidisestablishment columnist who smells red subversion round every corner. His reports start the sabers rattling. Soon the CIA comes to call, as well as a general with a mail-order catalogue of all kinds of armament. Caught up in the whirlwind is the stupefied prince, a native bandit; the ambassador's radical daughter from Radcliffe, eager to major in guerilla warfare, a native bandit; and a pacification expert who will tell the country how to settle back as it had been once the bomb craters are filled and the reconstruction period is over.

Sheep on the Runway premiered on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theatre in January 1970 under the direction of Gene Saks.
