Treading The Boards: Barefoot In The Park starring Peter Davison and Sandra Dickinson (1981-84)

Interestingly enough, these two theatre programmes of Barefoot In The Park featuring Peter Davison and Sandra Dickinson offer up an interesting scenario.

Davison was appearing on stage at Bromley's Churchill Theatre in the show from February 18 to March 7 1981, merely a few weeks before making his debut as the fifth actor to play Doctor Who.

The second programme finds Davison on stage again this time at The Richmond Theatre, Surrey over three years later from June 11 to June 16, 1984, months after ending his stint on Doctor Who.

Accompanying Davison in Barefoot In The Park by Neil Simon was his then wife, the actress, Sandra Dickinson.

Dickinson is now perhaps best remembered for her appearance as Trillian in the TV version of Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, but has kept a strong presence in TV roles since the 1980s.

Peter Davison and Sandra Dickinson are also the parents of actress Georgia Moffett.

The 1981 presentation of Barefoot In The Park also starred Ewen Solon and Margery Mason, while the 1984 version featured Gerald Flood and Marcia Ashton.
