Notes

> Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf was scheduled to run in repertory until 3 December 1977. However, it only ran for one week as the lead actress Petronella Ford had issues with her health and all subsequent performances were cancelled; the actress left the company soon afterwards. It was reported at the time this was the first time the venue had had to cancel a performance due to illness or injury.
> This production marked the directorial debut of Mervyn Watson at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round; Mervyn had also written and acted for the company and was also its first Associate Director.
