Notes

Cheap & Cheerful was conceived as a skit on seaside town end-of-the-pier shows; in fact the brochure design borrowed heavily from actual productions at Scarborough Spa Theatre.
In the Stephen Joseph Theatre's brochure for the winter 1998 / 1999 season, the production is credited as being co-directed by Alan Ayckbourn and Connal Orton; however, the actual production programme only credits Alan Ayckbourn.
