The 'Grey' Plays
We occasionally receive enquiries about Alan Ayckbourn's 'Grey' plays and whether they are available to read, produce or be will be published.
The 'Grey' plays are withdrawn and will never be published nor are they available for production.
The majority of them are held in the Ayckbourn Archive at the Borthwick Institute at the University of York and this is the only place where they can currently be accessed for reading.
