Notes

What The Devil! was conceived as a revue suitable touring pubs in the Scarborough area. This featured just three actors: Bob Eaton, Polly Warren and David Ross. Its success then led it to being brought into the winter 1975 season at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, expanded to a full evening's entertainment with additional pieces including the comedy sketch Dracula by Alan Ayckbourn.
During the 1974 and 1975 winter seasons at the Library Theatre, Scarborough, the Library Committee did not make the venue's Concert Room available; this room being where the Library Theatre had been based since 1955. In its place, a smaller room on the same floor - the Lecture Room - was offered but which could not incorporate theatre-in-the-round with productions performed three-sided (thrust).
