Bedroom Farce

By Alan Ayckbourn

Synopsis:

4 couples, 3 bedrooms, 2 parents, 1 self-assembly kit - what could possibly go wrong? Answer: just about everything!

This classic Ayckbourn from the 1970’s is a hilarious romp through bedrooms, relationships and DIY. It is possibly one of the funniest of our patron’s plays blending his characteristically incisive observation of human relationships, desires and prevarications with a fast-paced storyline in which marriages threaten to collapse as fast as the furniture!

The experienced and talented members of the Next Stage cast - headed by George Gent and Joanna Bowman - are experienced and renowned for their previous fine interpretations of Ayckbourn’s plays and can’t wait to bring to The Mission Theatre this great pre-festive treat.

Don’t miss out on your chance to catch this Ayckbourn classic!

Amazingly he’s written over seventy plays and this is one of his most successful. Young couple, Kate and Malcolm, are having a housewarming party downstairs. Trevor has turned up, hoping that his wife, Susannah, hasn’t. But, you’ve guessed it, she has. Jan,…click here to read the whole review.
