About this show

To mark his 75th birthday year, Alan Ayckbourn has created a confectionary assortment, a varied bouquet of five related short plays, each with differing flavours and colours and written to be played in no particular order. Some are connected through shared characters, some through overlapping narrative. Some are sequels to others which turn out to be preludes to others. There are (apparently!) 120 possibilities as to the order in which they can be performed. Depending on the chosen sequence, each evening will develop differently. Which order will you see? Nobody knows for certain, least of all us. It won't be decided till the night!

World Premiere (Stephen Joseph). Please note: contains strong language.
