Notes

> This is the first major British revival of Henceforward… since its award-winning London premiere at the Vaudeville Theatre in 1988; it has been revived elsewhere in the world with success and Alan’s decision to revive it followed a particularly successful year-long run in Hamburg during 2015.
> Alan Ayckbourn originally intended to revive
Things We Do For Love before changing the revival to Henceforward….
> For the original production in 1987, the climatic piece of music was composed by Paul Todd on a very rare Synclavier, valued at £250,000. For the revival, the music has been composed by Alan Ayckbourn himself using just his Mac computer. How technology has changed!
> To reflect the changes in technology since it was written, Alan Ayckbourn has made some cosmetic revisions to the play regarding technology.
