Notes

A View From The Brink consisted of three plays by David Campton: Out Of The Flying Pan, Soldier From The Wars Returning and Mutatis Mutandis.
David Campton was a participant in one of Stephen Joseph's playwriting courses held at the Central School Of Speech And Drama, London, prior to the Library Theatre opening. He would become the Library Theatre's first writer-in-residence.
A View From The Brink was originally advertised as closing on 7 September but with extensive changes to the season once it had gone underway - largely to remove 'Prentice Pillar from the schedule, its run was extended to 10 September.
A View From The Brink was presented without an interval.
