Notes

> Meet My Father was the original title for Alan Ayckbourn's Relatively Speaking; the playwright's first major West End hit. The title was altered for the West End production in 1967 as the producer Peter Bridge felt Meet My Father was "too provincial."
>
Meet My Father was the final Ayckbourn play to be directed by Stephen Joseph before his death in October 1967. He did live to see his protege enjoy his first West End success, which set him Alan Ayckbourn on the path to take over as Artistic Director of the Library Theatre in 1972.
>
Meet My Father was presented without an interval.
