Note: When reading the Independent On Sunday's interview, it is important to note that the curriculum vitae article at the end of the piece has several significant factual errors regarding dates of important Ayckbourn events and should not be regarded as an accurate source of information. Accurate details for significant events in Alan Ayckbourn's life can be found on the Chronology page of the Life section.
