Remember The Truth Dentist.


Remember The Truth Dentist.

Original poster printed by the alltogethernow Press advertising Ken Campbell’s production of Heathcote Williams’s play at the Royal Court’s Theatre Upstairs, Sloane Square, London, December 13th, 1974-February 1st, 1975. Colour offset litho. 40.5x25.3cm.

The play sets out Williams’s views on taxation, revolution and death. Irving Wardle wrote in The Times that he was “a citizen of the Albion Fee State, unfortunately stranded in the Britain of 1974 and captive of landlords, taxmen, police, church, the royal family and the other oppressors of that miserable land.”

Originally written as a one-man revue, Campbell employed six actors and a musician, not always with the playwright’s approval (who reportedly also disliked the poster).

Old corner pinholes; small bite-size loss to right edge; old central vertical and horizontal folds; o/w Very Good.
