Notes

The Rehearsal marked the first time Alan Ayckbourn worked with the designer Michael Holt. It would begin a long collaborative relationship which continues to the present day with Michael having designed for the world premieres of Alan’s plays as well as revivals and West End productions.
This was a production of Lucienne Hill's adaptation of the Anouilh play.
