After play party, 1964

1964

Photo at an after-play party for Ngaio Marsh’s production of Julius Caesar for the University of Canterbury Drama Society (her last Shakespeare play for the society I think). Ngaio Marsh is in the foreground with various cast members. I am back right with a wineglass; I was one of the crowd and a spear-carrier I think. On left Stephen Erber (now a judge) and on right Gerald Lascelles a lawyer.
