Notes

Mr Whatnot was the first play to be staged at the Theatre In The Round At Westwood (later renamed the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round).
The play was deliberately chosen by Artistic Director Alan Ayckbourn as it was one of his few plays to have never received a professional performance in Scarborough and he felt the lightness of the piece was well-suited to the celebratory nature of the company moving to a new home.
