House and Garden

OPENING / CLOSING DATES

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

At the Platt country manor, whilst womanising landowner Teddy Platt eagerly awaits the arrival of an old friend in the house, in the garden, preparations for the annual village fete are well underway. Amidst the manicured setting, gossip, affairs and petty feuds run rife and with a host of colourful characters and troubled couples mingling throughout the day, tensions run higher still into the night.

In the unique setting of The Watermill, Alan Ayckbourn's pair of linked comedies will be performed simultaneously by the same cast between the theatre and a marquee in its beautiful gardens. With hilarious consequences, one character's entrance to House is another's exit from Garden in this fast-paced duo of plays! This will be the first time that Ayckbourn's play has been performed both inside and out, promising to be a very special production that will be epic and intimate in equal measure.
