This will have been the dramatisation by Denise Deegan for the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton at Christmas 1988. Denise before that had a great success with Daisy Pulls It Off, a spoof play based on girls' school stories of the early 20th century. It ran in the London West End for a long time.
There was another production of S&A a year or two later at Theatr Clwyd, and then Denise came and gave a delightful talk about it all at the TARS Literary Weekend in 1995. If anyone out there is a TARS member, they can get the "Transcripts of the Third Literary Weekend". I'm not going to quote it here: it runs to 11 pages of A4.
Sadly, though there was tremendous enthusiasm at the talk about another adaptation, nothing ever came of it.
(Incidentally, if you do get the transcripts, you'll find other gems such as Publishing Arthur Ransome by Tony Colwell, who looked after the books at Jonathan Cape's for years.)
