Plays & Playwrights (1955 - 2008)
These pages offer a guide to significant plays which have been staged in the town between 1955 and 2009 as well as looking at the playwrights whose work premiered in Scarborough during this period. In the case of the most famous playwright to originate from theatre in the round in Scarborough, in-depth details of all of Alan Ayckbourn's plays can be found on his official website at www.alanayckbourn.net.
Note, the choice of significant plays explored here is a personal one drawn from more than two decades research into the history of theatre in the round in Scarborough. It is not definitive and there are undoubtedly productions which other people might consider more significant. But at the very least, it offers a taste of the diversity and range of productions offered by the company between 1955 and 2009.
