Notes

When the actor Jeremy Franklin slipped a disc during the first week of performances, Alan Ayckbourn stepped in for several performances, reading from the book. This impromptu appearance is considered the playwright's final professional acting performance.
No brochure for the summer 1969 season is held in archive and, as a result, no definitive dates are known for the season other than the opening and closing nights if the season and the opening nights of The Dynamic Death-Defying Leap of Timothy Satupon the Great and How The Other Half Loves.
