Notes

Westwood Coronation Day Street Party was the first lunchtime play to be presented at the Stephen Joseph Theatre; since 1977 the lunchtime plays have become a staple of the company and are frequently a showcase for new writing. During the 1977 summer season lunchtime shows took place in the Studio space on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, alternating between four productions.
The play was one of two produced at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round in 1977 to mark the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation; the other was the far less successful production The Jubilee Show.
