Absurd Person Singular

June 29th - July 3rd

 

ABSURD PERSON SINGULAR BY ALAN AYCKBOURN

Directed by Michael Cabot

Set Design by Simon Scullion

Lighting Design by Andy Grange

Costume Design by Kate Lyons

Three married couples. Three kitchens. Three Christmas parties.

Sidney Hopcroft, a small-time tradesman, persuades wife Jane to throw a party hoping to find favour with a bank manager and local architect. As celebrations begin, class differences and naked ambition combine to hilarious effect as, one by one, the characters seek refuge in Jane’s kitchen.

Over the next two years, the Jacksons and Brewster-Wrights take turns to host festivities. But Sidney’s star has begun to rise and roles are increasingly reversed as the cracks in the other couples’ marriages begin to show.

Alan Ayckbourn’s comic masterpiece of social climbing in 1970s suburbia fuses a potent mix of farce and black comedy.

‘A master of comic ingenuity.’ The Guardian
