Research Assistance

One of the primary aspects of the role of Archivist is to handle research enquiries regarding Alan Ayckbourn, his plays and career. The majority of these are enquiries by individuals researching or interested in Alan Ayckbourn and his plays.
I've also been involved with larger research projects and this page contains examples of some of these projects. This includes working with theatres, television companies, museums and academics amongst others.
If you have a research enquiry, please contact me via the link in the right-hand column.
