The Disagreeable Oyster by Giles Cooper
Produced by Donald McWhinnie
BBC Third Programme 15 Aug 1957


Mervyn Bundy, the main character of this play, is divided into two parts - Bundy Major and Bundy Minor. Bundy Major is the real person. Bundy Minor is the bit inside him - his second thoughts, or his conscience, or whatever you want to call him. The only thing we really know about him is that he's inside Bundy Major, and he can't get out. ...Highly stylised rich as a cartoon film in outrageous comic invention and as sober as a Chekhov play in its concern with human beings. ....from an essay by Donald McWhinnie
