Notes

Soldier From The Wars Returning was part of an evening of three plays by David Campton presented under the title A View From The Brink. The other plays were Out Of The Flying Pan 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 presented without an interval.
