By Alan Ayckbourn

21-23, 27-28 Feb, 1-2 Mar 2019 at 7.30pm

Matinée 2 March at 2.30pm

From babies to babes, politicians to vicars, tea urns to toys, dinner and doubts, Alan Ayckbourn offers us a wry view of 1970s suburban Britain.

In a sequence of five, interconnected one-act plays, all loosely linked by characters or locations, a cast of five play more than 20 parts and morph through a bewildering range of wigs, costumes and accents.

Better known for his high speed farce, here Ayckbourn explores hypocrisy and loneliness in middle England through series of comic snapshots which view life with a slightly skewed eye, asking the audience, are these people pitiful, or just plain ridiculous?
