Notes

> 'Prentice Pillar was the first play to be revived by Studio Theatre Ltd at the Library Theatre, Scarborough. It received its world premiere at the venue during its inaugural season in 1955 and further details can be found here.
> Very little is known about this production as it is one of the rare instances where not even a copy of a programme is held by the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough.
> Although the director is not known, it is possible it was Stephen Joseph as he did direct the original production; it is known it was not Julian Herrington who directed half of the summer season at the venue.
> The brochure for the summer season at the Library Theatre incorrectly states the play was first produced in 1956, rather than 1955.
