Appeal for plaque of playwright

editorial image

AN appeal has been launched to find a plaque of Scarborough playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn.

The plaque was sculpted by Gwendoline Hirst in 1981 and accepted by the Stephen Joseph Theatre.

Receipt of the plaque was acknowledged at the time by Ken Boden, the former general manager at the theatre.

However, Brian Allensby contacted the Evening News to appeal for help after revealing there are no copies of the plaque or photographs of it in circulation.

If anyone can assist, contact reporter Steven Hugill on (01723) 383829.
