Alan Ayckbourn’s hit comedy How the Other Half Loves at the Duke of York’s Theatre
By huge demand Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious tale of matrimonial mishaps, How The Other Half Loves, directed by Alan Strachan is moving house to the Duke of York’s Theatre for a 12 week run.
Continuing its first major revival, Ayckbourn’s tale of social graces and personal misunderstanding remains one of the celebrated writer’s most famous comedies.
How the Other Half Loves runs from 7 July 2017 until 1 October at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
A witty, funny and beautifully crafted play, How the Other Half Loves juggles time and space to present the lives and loves of three married couples.
As Bob and Fiona clumsily try to cover up their affair, their spouses’ intervention only adds to the confusion. William and Mary Featherstone become hopelessly stuck in the middle, falsely accused of adultery and with no idea as to how they’ve become involved. The plot culminates in two disastrous dinner parties on successive nights, shown at the same time, after which the future of all three couples seems in jeopardy…
The cast includes Nicholas Le Prevost, Jenny Seagrove, Jason Merrells, Andrea Lowe, Matthew Cottle & Gillian Wright.
Alan Ayckbourn is one of the most prolific and widely performed of living English language playwrights and a highly regarded theatre director. He has written 74 full length plays and has won Olivier, Tony and Moliere Awards for his work.
