It was later made into a film that succeeded in unusual ways, and was adapted for the stage by Richard Schenkman. The Very Little Theatre in Eugene now offers a Stage Left production of the play, directed by Jay Hash, and starring David Mort as the central character, John Oldman. The play will run from December 6th through 15th. Jay Hash joins Eric Alan in the KLCC studios.
