Notes

> The Man With A Flower In His Mouth was presented in a double-bill with Love & Chance.
>
The Man With A Flower In His Mouth was not originally scheduled for the summer 1958 season at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, and does not appear in any advance advertising. However, when the running time for Love & Chance only came to 70 minutes, the Artistic Director Stephen Joseph decided to make the evening a double-bill and programmed in what he considered "a small masterpiece" Pirandello's The Man With A Flower In His Mouth.
> 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.
> The Man With A Flower In His Mouth was presented without an interval.
