Notes

Little Brother, Little Sister was part of an evening of three plays by David Campton presented under the title Four Minute Warning. The other plays were At Sea 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.
In possibly one of his most memorable roles, Alan Ayckbourn played the role of Cook - an eighty year old, psychotic female chef!
