Notes

No producer credit is given in the programme for The Ark, but it seems likely - given it was by a writer whom Stephen Joseph directed every other production at the Library Theatre of - that he directed the production.
The Ark was initially advertised as running from 21 - 27 July and 18 - 24 August. The schedule was extensively altered once the season had begun though and 'Prentice Pillar was removed after its first week. As a result, The Ark was presented from 21 - 27 July and 11 - 17 August.
The Ark was presented without an interval.
