physical_description
Poster on gloss finish card featuring a photograph of the convict lead character of Whistle Down The Wind by his motorcycle, silhoutted against a burning orange sky with a ball of flame from the burning barn. He carries a shotgun over his shoulders; his head is lowered and his arms are resting on each end of the gun as if in a pose of crucifixion. A neon billboard above his image gives the title Whistle Down The Wind, while the quote from the critic Charles Spenser: 'Lloyd Webber's Best Show Since Phantom' appears in white lettering at the top of the poster, with a quote from the critic Michael Coveney in yellow lettering. The name and location of the theatre appear in yellow lettering below the image.
