Notes

Conversations With My Father transferred to the Old Vic, London, in 1995 with the same company. Further details about the transfer can be found at Alan Ayckbourn's Official Website here.
The production starred American actor Judd Hirsch as Eddie making his British stage debut. Hirsch had previously won a Tony for this role in the 1992 Broadway revival.
This is believed to be the British premiere of Conversations With My Father.
