Notes

> The Ruffian On The Stair marked the directorial debut of the actor Robin Herford. He would go on to run the venue whilst Alan Ayckbourn took a two year sabbatical to the National Theatre between 1986 and 1988. He would also go on to direct the world premiere and West End productions of The Woman In Black and is considered one of the leading directors of Alan Ayckbourn's plays.
