Notes

Although credited to David Campton in the programme for the production, notes in the Stephen Joseph Papers held at the University Of Manchester indicate the play was originally written by Stephen Joseph under the title What Would Mildred Have Said. The archive makes note the play was re-arranged by David Campton for the Library Theatre.
David Campton was the Library Theatre's first writer-in-residence and met Stephen Joseph as a participant in one of his playwriting courses held at the Central School Of Speech And Drama, London, prior to the Library Theatre opening in 1955.
Idol In The Sky was performed without an interval.
