Notes

> Laughton was inspired by the life of the actor Charles Laughton, who was born in Scarborough and whose brother - Tom - played a significant role in supporting the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round during the 1970s and 1980s.
> It marked the first production at the Stephen Joseph Theatre directed by Artistic Director Chris Monks in 10 months, following a sabbatical to plan for the theatre’s future.
