Notes

> The director Peter Cheeseman joined the Studio Theatre company for the Scarborough 1962 summer season before moving with the company to its first permanent home at the Victoria Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent, in the autumn. He would go on to become the long-running Artistic Director of the Victoria (later the New Vic, Newcastle-under-Lyme) from 1964 - 1998.
>
The Man Of Destiny was presented as part of a Bernard Shaw double-bill with O'Flaherty V.C..
> The change to a double-bill was a late addition to the schedule as
The Man Of Destiny was initially advertised without an accompanying play.
