Notes

Larkin With Women would go on to win Best New Play at the 2000 Barclay Theatre Awards. Highly acclaimed and featuring Oliver Ford Davies as the poet Philip Larkin, Alan Strachan would go on to revive the play with Ford Davies and Carolyn Backhouse at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in 2006.
