How the Other Half Loves

Alan Ayckbourn's wickedly funny farce "How the Other Half Loves" concerns three couples: Frank and Fiona, Bob and Teresa, and William and Mary.

Bob is having an affair with Fiona. Unknown to each other they both use the innocent William and Mary as a cover for their affair.

A series of disastrous dinner parties, pitched battles, misinterpreted phone calls and reconciliations follow -- only for the confusion to start again at the end of the play ...

The action takes place in the living rooms of the Fosters' and the Phillips' houses, in 1970.

Our May 2007 production was directed by Euan MacLeod.
