Notes

> Although premiered at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, Bedroom Farce was actually commissioned by the National Theatre and would become Alan's first production to be staged at that venue. However, the National agreed for the play to have its first production in Scarborough.
> Commissioned as an end-stage play for the Lyttelton at the National Theatre, Alan initially intended to direct it in-the-round at the Library Theatre, Scarborough. Unfortunately, the set would not fit as intended into the space and was repurposed for three-sided 'thrust' performance. Alan Ayckbourn did not get the chance to direct it in-the-round as originally intended until its revival at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, in 2000.
