Interview: Evening Post (13 March 1990)

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

Absurd Person Singular

by Roy Martin

"I've done Jacobean plays like
Tis Pity She's A Whore and I really admire their wonderful feeling for language and their ability to handle lots of people. Eventually I want to direct the whole Shakespeare canon, particularly Lear, but I thought Othello would be a manageable play to start with - I see it as a very domestic affair." [1]

Website Notes:
Othello was actually the only Shakespeare play Alan Ayckbourn directed.
