Latin! or Tobacco and Boys

The Edinburgh Fringe in 1980 saw the first performance of a play with the pithy and descriptive title of Latin! or Tobacco and Boys. It perhaps won't be a galloping surprise to anyone who doesn't already know that this romp through the sex-drenched  atmosphere of an English public school was penned by Mr Stephen Fry. It has been produced a few times since and the text appears in Fry's Paperweight. However, I was particularly taken by the poster for the original Edinburgh production which is reproduced in The Fry Chronicles and which has a caption explaining it was the "most stolen' poster of the Fringe that year. I would love to add one of those to my collection one day!
