Notes

The Bed-Life Of A Mad Boy was presented as part of a double-bill with We've Minds Of Our Own.
This double-bill was a late addition to the schedule and replaced the final performance of the advertised Two For The Seesaw. Performed for just one night, the double-bill was the final performance of the season.
The image shows Alan Ayckbourn (left) during open rehearsals for the play with Stephen Joseph (right) directing.
