Notes

> This production of Absurd Person Singular subsequently toured from the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round before transferring into the West End.
> The actress Moira Redmond injured her back early in the play’s run and Heather Stoney was drafted in to read the part while a replacement was found. Lavinia Bertram then took over the role and, once Moira Redmond had recovered, subsequently took over the role of Eva for the tour and West End transfer.
