by Alan Ayckbourn
arranged by Beverley Rousset
We are invited to look at humorous, moving, tense, and hard to believe moments in the lives of a novelist, a politician, a judge and a theatrical agent.
Alan Ayckbourn has written a series of playlets in the same way as an author might write a series of short stories. The complete version consists of five playlets, but regrettably, due to time constraints, only four can be performed in this playreading. Each playlet is independent of all the others, although some characters appear in more than one.
Ayckbourn explores the ways in which various personalities react to the situation they find themselves in, and we are invited to look at humorous, moving, tense, and hard to believe moments in the lives of a novelist, a politician, a judge and a theatrical agent. First performed in 2014, Ayckbourn shows he is still looking for different ways of giving the public an evening to enjoy.
If you are interested in participating in the playreading, please fill out the form below. The arranger will be in touch to cast it two weeks to one month before the show.
