Dad's Tale: Programme

This page contains a reproduction of the original programme for the world premiere of Alan Ayckbourn's third play, Dad's Tale, at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, in 1960.


Dad's Tale is quite obviously written for when Alan Ayckbourn was still primarily an actor as the eight roles mentioned in the programme shows!
The programme note by Stephen Joseph is an excellent introduction to his aims and purposes for the Library Theatre, Scarborough - whilst also taking a dig at the London newspapers which were not covering the venue.
Like all Library Theatre productions of this period, Dad's Tale was performed without an interval.
