Notes

Tishoo has the distinction of being the fastest play to open in the West End following its world premiere at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round. The play opened in Scarborough on 24 July and subsequently opened at the Wyndham's Theatre, London, just three months later on 24 October 1979. Produced by Michael Codron and directed by Ronald Ayre, it featured Penelope Wilton, Diane Bull, Tom Selby and Geoffrey Palmer.
