Diana Morton-Hooper (Honour, Absurd Person Singular) directs Alan Ayckbourn’s superbly constructed, sharply observed 2004 play for The English Comedy Club.
It follows seven characters, each with something to hide, searching for companionship and love in an emotional social blur through four tightly interwoven stories. She has gathered a cracking ensemble to blow away those winter cobwebs:
Craig Simpson & Rachel Cuff as Dan & Nicola,
Abi Greef & Richard Foxon as Imogen & Stewart,
Alma Forsyth & Mark Prescott as Charlotte & Ambrose
and David Buckley as Arthur
It’s funny, poignant, and a must see.
Performances on Fri 25 Feb and Sat 26 Feb 2011 at 8 p.m.

Special Advice: The play lasts around 90 minutes with no interval and because of the way it is staged, once the play has started latecomers will not be admitted into the studio theatre. Curtain up is at 8 p.m. Please leave plenty
of time to find a parking space in the area as parking can be difficult at that time of night. We are looking forward to seeing you at the performance!
Sorry, there are no more tickets left for this production.
Hamlet is the supreme character in the finest play by the greatest playwright we have. He struts, frets, worries, jokes, abuses, roars, feigns madness, goes crazy, kills and finally is killed. All this because his mother married his uncle. So what if 4 different actors play Hamlet’s psychological unravelling and we simply hit the delete button on all other characters. See Hamlet struggle unaided with his demons in German, Swedish, Spanish, French and English. Surtitles in English & French
