Interview: Yorkshire Post (16 December 1988)

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

Child's Play

by Stephen Biscoe

"In theatre you have a group of people coming together to share an experience, and if we have done our work properly they will be elevated by the play and the sense of having shared it. In theatre-in-the-round you do feel you are sharing an experience, even more so than in a conventional theatre because other people surround you. You can't help seeing them."
