No Strapline

Show & Tell

Tue 15 Oct–Sat 26 Oct

Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn

Jack’s planning a big party for his wife’s birthday. He’s pulling out all the stops and has booked a touring theatre company to perform in the main hall of the family home. The only problem is that Jack is getting a bit forgetful in his old age and can’t remember all the details of the booking…

The Homelight Theatre Company is on its knees. They desperately need a well-paid gig and Jack’s booking is very well paid. Pinning him down on the details has been tricky and something doesn’t feel quite right.

Alan Ayckbourn’s 90th play is a celebration of theatre, a delightfully dark farce lifting the lid on the performances we act out on a daily basis.

 

‘He is a kind of English Chekhov who is also an incomparably fine director of his own serious comedies’
The Wall Street Journal on The Girl Next Door (2021)
