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.
