‘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.

The settings are simple - a kitchen, a bedroom, a party - all familiar terrains where husbands and wives meet, bewildered, puzzled and angry.
