Richard Briers and June Whitfield are believed to be lining up for a major West End revival of Sir Alan Ayckbourn's Bedroom Farce. Written back in 1975, it was Ayckbourn's first success at the National Theatre and has been a popular touring production around the UK regionals for years. The drama concerns four married couples who are at different stages in their relationships, and whose lives intersect over the course of an evening. Ayckbourn is the second most performed playwright in Britain, after Shakespeare, and his other major works include Absurd Person Singular, A Chorus of Disapproval and A Small Family Business. Richard Briers is one of the world's most respected actors, with admirers ranging from Robert De Niro to Kenneth Branagh. June Whitfield rose to prominence via the TV sitcom Terry and June, but trained at RADA and appeared in numerous stage works.
