To mark the author’s 80th birthday earlier in the year, a look back on some of the family and children’s plays written by Alan Ayckbourn and presented at the SJT between 1988 and 2004.
This is your chance to revisit favourites ranging from Mr A’s Amazing Maze Plays to Miss Yesterday, plus a few lesser known earlier ones such as Dad’s Tale (1960) and Christmas v Mastermind (1962).
Featuring readings from the current SJT Company plus a few special guests with recollections and reminiscences from the author in person. A one-off occasion, unlikely to be repeated and certainly not to be missed!
Make the most of this special occasion with our VIP experience ticket which includes a signed programme, prosecco and an invitation to the post-show reception in the bar.
All proceeds from this special evening will make sure the next generation of talented writers and directors can be offered opportunities here at SJT.
What the critics said about Mr A’s Amazing Maze Plays:
‘Contains mystery, suspense and imagination’
‘Kept a young audience spell bound for 90 minutes with a dazzling display of imaginative and technical virtuosity. On one level [it] is a charming children’s story, [but there are] traces of the master’s pungent humor’
THE YORKSHIRE EVENING PRESS
And about Invisible Friends:
‘Ayckbourn has written something that will bring the whole family along… seriousness wrapped in rich comedy’
