Notes

The Westwoods was originally intended to be (and advertised as) a three-part musical revue inspired by TV shows such as The Thron Birds and The Waltons. At some point. The different parts being called Episode 36, Episode 12 and Episode 105. At some point, the revue was altered to just two parts: HIs Side and Her Side, but appears to have largely kept the same intentions as what was originally advertised.
The Westwoods was a revue performed during lunchtimes in the Studio at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round.
The Westwoods is a play both on the venue where the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round was based at Westwood in Scarborough and also on the famous Sitwell family which lived in Scarborough.
