Notes

> Office Of Information was presented as part of an evening called Three One Act Plays. It also featured the plays The Disguises Of Arlecchino by Clifford Williams and Call The Selkie Home by Eleanor D Glaser. The evening was originally advertised as a double-bill with Office Of Information being a late addition.
>
Office Of Information does not originally appear to have been planned for the production as the 1956 season brochure only mentions The Disguises Of Arlecchino and Call The Selkie Home as being presented.
> This was the first play presented at the Library Theatre which was a production of an existing play. All prior productions had been new commissions for the company.
