  • 3 September 1971: "Brain by John Abulafia, performed by Incubus Theatre. Five actors present the functions, actions and reactions of a brain. They use mime, song, group movement, dance and a variety of noises. A sixth actor, representing the outside world, involves himself with the brain."
  • 10th September 1971: "Woman of the Place by Peter Hulton, based on a Japanese story, performed by Freehold. A woman has lost her man and travels seeking him but finds only echoes of him. She looks back to their past happiness. The play is a study of grief and loss, a woman coming to terms with her memories. The text is a dialogue between the woman and a dramatic chorus, with a commentator who relates her sadness to the universal experience of pain."
