Alan Ayckbourn rewrote Ten Times Table after getting approximately half-way through the play. His early notes indicate the play was substantially different including - as can be seen here - a multi-location set in-the-round as opposed to the single location set of the actual play.

More early notes by Alan Ayckbourn for Ten Times Table for a substantially different plot. Note the major character of Charlotte, central to the play and due to be performed by the playwright's partner Heather Stoney; the character was completely cut when the playwright began re-writing!

A structure for the earliest concept for Ten Times Table showing the relationship between the various characters. Again, not how central Charlotte is to the piece and the difference in certain character names and relationships from the actual play.
