2022 Confusions

5 short and connected plays make up this evenings entertainment. Written by Alan Ayckbourn, one of Britain’s best playwrights of the second half of the twentieth century, the 5 plays are to be performed together in a single evening.

Each play deals riotously, but with sharply pointed undertones, with human eccentricities and the human dilemma of loneliness; a mother unable to escape from baby talk, a disastrous fete, an unsuccessful seduction attempt, a fate fraught dinner encounter and the final play sums up with five self immolated characters on park benches.

Buoyant … sad, sharp and funny.
