A rare surviving example of a press release from the Library Theatre, Scarborough. Without a press department, the duties at this time fell to the theatre manager Ken Boden. This perhaps explains the less than enticing statements such as ‘sufficiently original and surprising”! (Copyright: Scarborough Theatre Trust)

An advert for the original tour of Family Circles with its second name-change of Me Times Me Times Me. (Held in the Ayckbourn Archive at the University of York)

An advertising hoarding for the original production of Family Circles (or The Story So Far… as it was originally titled). At the time, the Library Theatre, Scarborough, did not produce posters for its productions, so this is a rare example of advertising for a specific play. (Copyright: Scarborough Theatre Trust)

An advert for the same tour, less than two weeks later, in which the title of the play has changed again to Me Times Me - the change occurred during the actual tour leading to a complete reprint of programmes and advertising material. (Held in the Ayckbourn Archive at the University of York)
