  • 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.

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."
