Notes

> Love & Chance (also known as A Game Of Love & Chance) was presented in a double-bill with The Man With A Flower In His Mouth.
>
Love & Chance was not originally intended to be presented as part of a double-bill and was advertised as just one play. However, when it was realised the running time was just 70 minutes, a decision to add a second play for the evening was made.
> No brochure survives in archive for the 1958 summer season. As a result, the opening and closing dates have been collated through newspaper articles, reviews and other miscellany. Due to this, occasional dates doing the season are not 100% confirmed as accurate.
> Love & Chance was presented without an interval.
