This page reproduces some of Alan Ayckbourn's significant quotes from the interview.

Star Of The Seaside Show

by Robin Thornber

"I'm terribly interested in actors. I like talking to them as people."

"I find things as a director that I am discovering with the actors - the harmonics which you wrote but weren't even aware of. It's like driving a car - you get to your destination and later people point out the route you took."
