1965 Phillip Theatre Sydney Souvenir Program


A Cup of Tea, a Bex and a Good Lie Down was a comedy revue that opened at Sydney's Phillip Street Theatre on 18 September 1965. It was the longest running show at the Theatre in 1966 and was performed over 250 times during its extended run. The cast included John Ewart, Gloria Dawn, Ruth Cracknell and Reg Livermore. The play was written by John McKellar.

The play's subject matter was Bex, a strong compound analgesic in the form of A.P.C. or aspirin-phenacetin-caffeine tablets or powder. The product was advertised with the phrase, "Stressful Day? What you need is a cup of tea, a Bex and a good lie down".Bex powders were the housewife's drug of choice in the 1950s and 1960s until they were shown to be highly addictive and responsible for causing kidney disease when taken in large doses.
