Family Album: Quotes by Alan Ayckbourn

"It's one of my proto-feminist plays because there was a whole generation of women whom the parents never considered them worthy of a career. So the boys always got the education and when the money ran out, the girls were sent to somewhere inferior in the expectation they'd then get a job in Woolworths when they left school and marry the first bloke. That was like a life cancelled out really."
Alan Ayckbourn (4 February 2022)

“I was intrigued by a BBC programme called
A House In Time in which the presented traces the history of a house usually over two or three centuries and reveals the history of the various owners and occupants. I shortened the time-span so that it encompassed roughly my own life."
Alan Ayckbourn (2 March 2022)
