Current & Forthcoming Production Enquiries

Enquiries about specific forthcoming Ayckbourn productions should be directed to the specific theatre concerned (such as the Stephen Joseph Theatre) or, in the case of West End productions, the show producer.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre

Please do not contact the Stephen Joseph Theatre with general enquiries relating to Alan Ayckbourn as the SJT Press Officer will not be able to help and will only direct you back to this website. The SJT press department will only deal with Ayckbourn enquiries directly relating to the playwright's forthcoming productions at the venue. Please note, Alan Ayckbourn is now just a guest director at the theatre and is not present at the venue except during production weeks for his own plays.
