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 1962 - 1998.
O'Flaherty V.C. was presented as part of a Bernard Shaw double-bill with The Man Of Destiny.
O’Flaherty V.C. was a late addition to the schedule as The Man Of Destiny was not originally publicised as a double-bill.
