Greetings From Scarborough DVD - 2011 - Alan Ayckbourn, Alain Renais
Alan Yentob meets the renowned British playwright Alan Ayckbourn in this documentary from the BBC's flagship 'Imagine' strand. Sir Alan Ayckbourn is often described as the world's most performed living playwright. Yet it is his popularity that has often led to him being overlooked as a serious dramatist in the UK. As he premieres his 75th play in his seaside theatre in Scarborough, Imagine sets out to discover why Ayckbourn is so popular, and a chorus of distinguished fans explain why he must be recognised as one of the great dramatists of our time.
