Mr Whatnot: Frequently Asked QuestionsAlan Ayckbourn's Archivist Simon Murgatroyd answers some of the most frequently asked questions about Alan Ayckbourn's Mr Whanot.
Is the sound plot for Mr Whatnot available to hire?
No. Although the sound-plot posed a considerable challenge when the play was first written in 1963, it has since become far easier to create with the advent of digital sound and modern sound desks. As a result, there is no pre-existing sound-plot for hire and Alan Ayckbourn's strongly believes each plot should be tailored to the specific company / performance.
