Notes

Standing Room Only was the final play by Alan Ayckbourn to be produced under his pseudonym of Roland Allen. When the play was revived in 1962 at the Victoria Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent, it was credited to Alan Ayckbourn.
So popular was Standing Room Only that although advertised as ending in repertory on 9 August, it was brought back for two performances on 7 & 8 September in place of Two For The Seesaw which closed three days earlier than originally advertised.
