Absurd Person Singular

by Alan Ayckbourn
Opening Night 19 February 2004
Director: Brian Beresford

Alan Ayckbourn is one of Britains most popular living dramatists, writing sixty plus plays since the early 1970s. Set over three consecutive Christmases we watch as the respective fortunes of the three couples change, their appearances and that of their kitchens too. We see the games they play with each other and their guests, the rise of the house of one couple and the fall of another. We recognise them all because we have seen them in our friends, familes, neighbours and ourselves.
