Alan Ayckbourn invites you to join him in celebrating his 60 years with the company.

These two special nights, led by Alan himself, bring you extracts of his plays from across those years and rejoice in the stories of making them. Alan is joined by members of this summer’s company and from his past companies to bring them to life.
