Product description

Review

The prolific master of suburban mayhem has still got his mojo. (Evening Standard)

For Mr Ayckbourn, as for Chekhov, farce and tragedy are no more mutually exclusive in theatre than they are in life. (New York Times)

Ayckbourn's genius lies in his ability to write what you might call "sad comedies", uproariously funny farces that are at second glance deeply serious. (Wall Street Journal)

The poet laureate of missed connections. In play after pensive, droll and acid play, Ayckbourn anatomises how we fail to understand and trust our lovers and friends. (Guardian)

About the Author

ALAN AYCKBOURN spent two years in regional theatre as an actor and stage manager before, in 1959, writing his first play, The Square Cat, for Scarborough's Theatre in the Round at the instigation of Stephen Joseph. Some 75 plays later, his work has been translated into over 35 languages, is performed on stage and television throughout the world and has won countless awards. Knighted in 1997 for services to the theatre, he received the 2010 Critics' Circle Award for Services to the Arts and became the first British playwright to receive both Olivier and Tony Special Lifetime Achievement Awards.
