Administrative / Biographical History
The Little Hut, a play adapted by Nancy Mitford from the light comedy by AndrÃ© Roussin. Oliver Messel's production was first produced by H. M. Tennent Productions Ltd. at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London on 7 October, 1953. It was directed by Peter Brook and featured Joan Tetzel as Susan and David Tomlinson as Henry. It was also performed at the Coronet Theatre, New York on 7 October 1953. Roger Pinkham has said of this production "The set of The Little Hut, exotically fruited, and ideally over-run with vegetation, made an ideal and highly praised setting for the slender story of husband, wife and lover wrecked on a desert island." (Pinkham, ed., 1983).
