This Is Where We Came In: Behind The Scenes

Behind The Scenes offers a glimpse at some rarely known facts regarding the writing of Alan Ayckbourn's plays with material drawn from the Ayckbourn Archive at the University Of York and the playwright's personal archive.
  • The Ayckbourn Archive contains an unproduced screenplay based on Alan Ayckbourn's play This Is Where We Came In. It was written by Ken Howard - with input by Alan Ayckbourn - for potential development for television by Landseer Productions; unfortunately it got no further than the screenplay stage. Ken Howard had first met Alan Ayckbourn as the result of his award-winning television documentary The Lowdown - You've Got A Friend, in which Alan Ayckbourn contributed to the programme's exploration of children's invisible friends. It is believed the screenplay of This Is Where We Came In developed from this meeting.
