Notes

> It was reported in the media that Alan Ayckbourn had been trying to stage Time & The Conways for a couple of years but rights issues had delayed the production.
> The cast included Abigail McKern, daughter of the actor Leo McKern - possibly best known for his television role as
Rumpole Of The Bailey - in her first professional acting role. It was reported when he came to see Abigail in the play, he apparently arrived late and was snuck into his seat only to be recognised by the audience and given an impromptu round of applause.
