by Alan Ayckbourn

"'Bedroom Farce is a masterclass in comedy at its finest!" The London Telegraph
Trevor and Susannah, a highly-strung self-absorbed couple, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest: three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. The action takes place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples’ bedrooms during one endless Saturday night of co-dependence and dysfunction. Ayckbourn’s arch observation of human nature reveals the quirks, foibles and comforts of marriage with a kind eye towards the love that binds couples together. The farce in this play relies upon the comedy of character, sprinkled with a good dash of slapstick. As foolish as these characters can be, Ayckbourn gives us warm and loveable human beings with a lovely lightness of touch.
