Notes

> Rather bizarrely, when the Northern Broadsides revived Rutherford & Sons in 2013 - and which visited the Stephen Joseph Theatre - it was promoted as one of the first major revivals of the play. This was despite the fact that the production had been produced to acclaim by the Scarborough company in 1991.
