The Company (1976 - 1995)

This page includes details of the company at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round from 1976 to 1995.

It is drawn entirely from surviving programmes and material in the Ayckbourn Archive and whilst comprehensive, it cannot be seen as definitive due to the limitations of the information held in archive (please see
Research Notes for further details), particularly with regard to the often uncredited roles for lighting, design and costumes during this period.

This page is still under construction and details are still be added.
