Quotes & Notes

During 1962, the Studio Theatre Ltd company moved from its home at Theatre in the Round at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, to a new permanent venue at the Victoria Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent. Alan Ayckbourn joined the move to the new venue, responsible for writing, directing and acting. Very little is held in Alan Ayckbourn's personal archive about the plays he was involved in during 1963 and there are no programmes, press cuttings or reviews of the shows held in archive.

1963 marked the last year Alan did any substantial amount of acting prior to his retiring from acting to concentrate on writing and directing from 1964 onwards.

Miss Julie was presented as a double bill with Alan Plater's The Rainbow Machine.

Miss Julie presents an interesting problem as the programme for the production does not feature Alan Ayckbourn playing the role of Jean, only crediting him as director. However, a production photograph has been identified as being of this production of Miss Julie with Alan Ayckbourn playing the role of Jean.
