Painfully funny plays set in 1970s suburbia from one of the UK's leading playwrights.

‘What is remarkable about Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy is that it contrives to be simultaneously hilarious and harrowing. Literally, it is agonisingly funny’Daily TelegraphFunny, gripping and wrenchingly truthful, these three blackly comic plays slice into the soul of suburbia. Couples - often mismatched, sometimes disorientated - dominate the action. The settings are simple - a kitchen, a bedroom, a party - all familiar terrains where husbands and wives meet, bewildered, puzzled and angry.
