Quotes & Notes

Anno Domino marked an unexpected return to acting for Alan Ayckbourn. During 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic swept the world and led to a national lockdown of the UK's theatres. In response to this, Alan decided to record a previously unproduced play at his home with himself and his wife, Heather Stoney (also a former professional actor), playing all the roles. He recorded and edited the full-length play before the Stephen Joseph Theatre released it as a world premiere audio stream. This marked the first time Alan Ayckbourn had both directed and acted in one of his plays.
