“Afternoon at the Seaside is quite delightful in everyway. It is light, gay and amusing, but still has a twist at the end, and I had nostalgic memories of Spider’s Web. It was certainly the hit of the evening." - Peter Saunders, Producer of The Mousetrap
Afternoon at the Seaside was first presented as part of Rule of Three which toured the United Kingdom in 1961 and subsequently opened at the Duchess Theatre in the West End in 1962.
