Notes

Chances was a lunchtime production performed in the Studio at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round.
Chances was advertised as opening on 2 June 1988 in the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round summer 1988 brochure, but actually opened on 31 May.
Very little is know about Chances with next to nothing held in archive for the play. No company details are known except for the two actresses and although it is advertised as being directed by Stephen Mallatratt, one of the two reviews in archive suggests Alan Ayckbourn was the director; this page assumes the theatre's brochure copy is correct.
For many years, it was assumed this was a world premiere production of the play - having been adapted from the 1981 radio play. However, the play was actually first produced in London in 1983.
