Bedroom Farce
by Alan Ayckbourne
poster A play that is set in three bedrooms, all on stage at the same time! The bedrooms belong to three couples – Ernest and Delia, Trevor and Susannah and Nick and Jan. The intertwined intricacies of their lives unwind in each of the bedrooms – the doubts, the jealousies, the misgivings, the love and the anger - and each character touches the lives of the others in some way. This hilarious comedy, almost literally a bedroom farce, has a bitter-sweet twist that only Alan Ayckbourn could achieve.

The Deep Blue Sea
by Terence Rattigan

When Hester Collyer is discovered by her neighbours in her flat, having attempted suicide, the complex and emotional layers of her traumatic life begin to be unravelled. Throughout the course of one day – and via a series of flashbacks – we learn of her marriage to a respectable High Court judge, her past affair with a former RAF pilot, and her devastation when the affair comes to an end. But, Hester finds a curious and moving kinship with one of her neighbours, an ex-doctor struck off for undisclosed reasons – both of them outcasts, each socially ostracised for their excessive loves.

This classic 1952 play by Terence Rattigan is back on our stage for our 70th Anniversary season by popular demand.
