November 2010: Confusions


five short plays by Alan Ayckbourn

17th-20th November 2010

Sam and Nicola in Rehearsals

Lucy spends so much time at home with the kids, that she’s started to treat everyone – even the next-door neighbours – like children. Her errant salesman husband, Harry, is miles away in an hotel, and has other things on his mind – namely, the charms of Paula and Bernice. Their waiter also has other concerns – the rapidly deteriorating relationships of diners Polly and Martin, and Mr and Mrs Pearce, for instance. Mrs Pearce is invited to open a village fete – but can’t possibly have any inkling of the mayhem which is about to ensue. Finally, five people meet on four park benches and wind each other up with tales of woe.

Ayckbourn is on top form with a cavalcade of sharply-drawn characters and hilarious situation comedy. Possibly the Beeston Players’ biggest production yet, performed in the round and up close, this is one not to miss!
