Notes

The Day Dumbfounded Got His Pylon featured a special guest appearance for this triple bill only of Eileen Derbyshire - better known as Emily Bishop (nee Nugent) in the long-running British television soap opera Coronation Street. By the time she performed in Scarborough, she had already been in the television show for five years.
The Day Dumbfounded Got His Pylon was presented as part of a triple bill (entitled Out Of Thin Air) alongside See The Pretty Lights and The Governor's Lady.
In advertising for the triple bill, both Henry Livings - who wrote this play and starred in out - and Eileen Derbyshire were heavily promoted as special guests.
A season brochure is not held for the 1965 season, so the precise date of the final performance is not definitive.
