The New York production of "Big Fish, Little Fish" by Hugh Wheeler opened at the ANTA Playhouse in New York on March 15, 1961 and ran for 101 performances. Hugh Wheeler wrote the movie screenplay based upon his stage play. See more »
I'm basing this on the year and the cast as I recall. A series of plays for television, (yes, another one), broadcast on PBS. William Windom as a marginally successful playwright. The entire production takes place in his studio apartment, with a loft bedroom for he and his married girlfriend. For the life of me, I cannot recall a chubby Ann B. Davis in this role. Again, as I recall, it centers on him working on a play, with a troupe of friends parading through, drinking, eating, commenting on society, and even disturbing he and his lover while they attempt love making. Hey, it's an open loft bedroom and your friends are crashing right below ! Rememberances; Lou Gossett arguing with Windom about Windom's girlfriend getting older and not wanting to do 'it' as much anymore. Severn Darden obsessed with his pussy (cat) throwing up a furball. Yep. Not a lot like it on TV at the time. Apparently for good reason. PBS versions of cutting edge theatre of the time to check out, Steambath !
