Notes

The Sparrow marked the first time Alan Ayckbourn had directed one of his own plays at the Library Theatre, Scarborough. From this point forward, he will direct the world premiere of all but two of his plays in Scarborough.
The Sparrow was originally advertised with the title The Silver Collection. This appeared on the earliest poster and in early discussions of the season. It was then altered to The Sparrow which appears in brochures and on later posters for the season.
