Orvin - Champion Of Champions: Quotes by Alan Ayckbourn

"You don't often have the chance to write for a cast of 40, do something fun, with sword fights and dances. I met Jeremy Taylor [director of the National Youth Music Theatre] at the annual Andrew Lloyd Webber junket in 1996, where the National Youth Music Theatre were doing an excerpt from one of their shows, and Jeremy said `We must do something together'. He kept coming back to me and then two years ago he said 'Well, what about it?'. He gave me three time structures to work to and I chose the furthest away!"
