The Musical Jigsaw Play: 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.
  • Although no photographs exist of the set of The Musical Jigsaw Play showing the complete (or even incomplete) jigsaw, Alan Ayckbourn's original layout for the set still exists in archive. Reproduced below, it clearly shows how the 'jigsaw' looked when complete and how the assembled pieces created the finale song.
