Quotes & Notes

1961 saw Alan Ayckbourn's professional career began to move away from acting to what he is most well-known for. Although still predominantly an actor with Studio Theatre Ltd at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, he was also writing and directing for the company. 1961 saw the premiere of his fourth play and his debut as a director with a production of Gaslight.

The Boys And The Girls subsequently toured to the Municipal Hall, Newcastle-Under-Lyme, from 1 January 1962 for two weeks.
