Notes

Blithe Spirit marked the first production to be directed by Robin Herford after he had been appointed joint Artistic Director of the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round, whilst Alan Ayckbourn rook a two year sabbatical to work at the National Theatre in London. Robin was responsible for the day-to-day running of the theatre during this period.
