Notes

> In Camera (original Huis Clos) was actually first produced in London by Stephen Joseph's company on 3 February 1957, having previously been banned by the Lord Chamberlain's Office. It was at this production that Alan Ayckbourn saw the company and theatre-in-the-round for the first time.

In Camera was presented without an interval.
