NCP occasionally staged a double bill of productions and even a trio of productions which, on the one hand, gave the audience good value for money but on the other hand were logistically complex to stage.  It was common practice to produce a single programme for these multiple productions. The logistics behind staging a double bill were quite challenging with the need for multiple rehearsals; casts, sets, props and producers/directors, etc.
