> The closure of the West End production of Damsels In Distress and the way Alan perceived the production was treated, alongside a disappointing Wes End revival of Bedroom Farce, leads Alan to announce he will no longer bring his new plays into the West End or allowed them to be produced in the West End.

> The National Youth Music Theatre commissions Alan to write
Orvin - Champion Of Champions with the composer Denis King; a musical featuring more than 40 young people.

The Safari Party at Hampstead Theatre, London.

Things We Do For Love in Paris wins a Moliere Award for Best Comedy.
