What is Anno Domino?
Anno Domino is a full-length, full-cast play written by Alan Ayckbourn, which - due to the unusual circumstances of 2020 during the Covid-19 theatre lockdown - was premiered as an audio stream directed by Alan Ayckbourn, who also played all the males roles alongside his wife, Heather Stoney, playing all the female roles.

So it's an audio drama?
No. Anno Domino was written as a stage-production and is still intended to be performed as such. Circumstances led to Alan Ayckbourn suggesting it could be done as an audio stream during the UK lockdown of 2020. The playwright hopes it will go on to be produced as intended on stage with a full company.

Is Anno Domino available to produce?
Not yet. Anno Domino is currently not available to produce but details will be announced on this website when the play is made available for wider release.
