Notes

The Pirates Of Penzance was adapted from Gilbert & Sullivan's operetta with the addition of new lyrics by Chris Monks; it was a revival of a production he previously directed at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in December 2006. A notable feature of Chris Monks' tenure as Artistic Director was the significant number of works he produced which he had previously directed at other venues.
The production was cross-cast with Alan Ayckbourn's production of How The Other Half Loves. Alan Ayckbourn would later note this served neither production particularly well as they both had such different casting requirements.
