The production, a series of four one-acts, was written by Ed Bullins, directed by Allie Woods, and performed by the Jarboro Company. “Short Bullins” was produced as four of five one-acts by Ed Bullins, which were presented alongside Richard Wesley’s “Black Terror,” on the Jarboro Company’s October 1972 tour of Italy. Video documentation of tour rehearsals of “Black Terror” and Bullins’ fifth one-act, “Clara’s Old Man,” is contained on Reels B61, B62, and B63 in La MaMa’s collection.
