Notes

This was the English premiere of the play The Strongbox and presented the translation by Maurice Edwards & Valerie Reich.
The 1968 summer season is unique in the Stephen Joseph Theatre's history in that none of the acting company had ever worked at the Library Theatre before and none of them would rejoin the company in subsequent years.
