"One way or another you've had quite a full life haven't you? A house full of ghosts then? No wonder you look slightly haunted. Like a character out of Edgar Allen Poe. Beware!" A comedy in four parts about an unremarkable man and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him over 60 years; and of the equally remarkable old manor house that saw and heard it all happen. From his first unsettling encounter as a very young man in 1925 to an unexpected reunion late in life, Anthony Spates' romantic progress is charted in this hilarious and gently touching comedy. The fireworks, the love and loss come at the funniest moments in this brand new classic Ayckbourn comedy.
In a small town in Yorkshire, a beautiful widow is being wooed by two suitors. Fresh from the City and with endless money to dispose of, the older one showers her with gifts - which the younger (handsome, impecunious, an inveterate gambler) wants to put to better use. A love triangle, then; a tale of rivalry and avarice. But money's a slippery commodity and all is not quite as it seems. Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply. Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage's savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison's For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.
Goth Weekend tells the story of a girl growing up in a town where being different is difficult, where conforming is the norm. Mum's no longer around and dad has started dating a bit too soon. Worst of all he's dating Belinda, a Goth who looks like a vampire and has her purple hearse parked on the drive. No, worst of all he's started dressing like one... Set on the lead-up to Whitby Goth Weekend this funny and provocative play is about who we are and what we pretend to be - and why twice a year in North Yorkshire people dress up like Dracula. Dead good!
Roland, a rich bucket manufacturer, is considering buying a house with a somewhat colourful history. Taking Steps follows the lives of its eccentric occupants over the course of a frantic 24 hours. A Solicitor, a builder, Roland's neurotic wife Elizabeth, her boring brother and his fiancee all contribute to the confusion which ensues, resulting in a hilarious melee of suicide notes, mistaken identities and fights!
