Alan Ayckbourn's Archivist & Professional Writer

Alan Ayckbourn's Media Administrator

As Alan Ayckbourn's Media Administrator, I handle press and media enquiries relating to the playwright as well as the Ayckbourn social media accounts (Instagram, YouTube and WordPress) and a Press & Media Centre at the playwright's official website.

Press & Media Enquiries

If you have a press enquiry or query regarding Alan Ayckbourn, I can generally be contacted on Mondays to Thursdays between 9am and 3pm (with the exception of 22 December to 3 January). My email is:

Further details can be found in the
Press & Media Centre at Alan Ayckbourn's Official Website.

If your enquiry is specifically related to a forthcoming production of an Ayckbourn play, please do not contact me and follow the guidelines below.

Current & Forthcoming Production Enquiries

Enquiries about specific forthcoming Ayckbourn productions should be directed to the specific theatre concerned (such as the Stephen Joseph Theatre) or, in the case of West End productions, the show producer.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre

Please do not contact the Stephen Joseph Theatre with general enquiries relating to Alan Ayckbourn as the SJT Press Officer will only direct enquiries back to me.

The SJT press department only deals with Ayckbourn enquiries directly relating to the playwright's forthcoming productions at the venue. Please note, Alan Ayckbourn is now only a guest director at the theatre and is not present at the venue except during production week.

Social Media

I am responsible for handling the official Ayckbourn social media accounts on YouTube, Instagram and WordPress.

For the
YouTube channel, I also regularly create original recorded material relating to the playwright, his career and plays. The WordPress blog is predominantly news orientated but also features original articles as well as material drawn from the Ayckbourn Archive by or relating to Alan Ayckbourn.
