Notes

> Sisterly Feelings was revived following its short world premiere run during the 1978/79 winter season at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round.
> This is the first of Alan Ayckbourn's plays to involve an element of chance. In this case, a coin-flip decides the choice of two possible Act 1, Scene 2s and the actors themselves choose from two possible Act 2, Scene 1s.
>
Sisterly Feelings was not presented in-the-round, but three-sided as one side of seating had to be removed to make room for the hill which features so prominently in the play.
