In 1960’s London, couples are swinging, some more than others. Greg is paying a visit to Ginny’s parents to ask for her hand in marriage. Blithely misinformed, he arrives at the home of Philip and Sheila hoping they’ll give their blessing. But no one is quite what they seem and nothing quite goes to plan.
In this perfectly paced comedy of misunderstandings, Alan Ayckbourn expertly weaves an exquisite entanglement that will leave you guessing to the last minute. First presented by Peter Bridge at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London, on 29th March 1967.
Alan Ayckbourn is an Olivier and Tony Award winning playwright who has written more than 80 plays – many of which have been produced in London’s West End as well as around the world. As an acclaimed director, he has worked extensively in the West End and has also run his own company at the National Theatre.
Between 1972 and 2009, he was the Artistic Director of the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, where the majority of his work has been premiered. His works includes: Absurd Person Singular, The Norman Conquests trilogy, Bedroom Farce, Just Between Ourselves, A Chorus of Disapproval, Woman in Mind, Man Of The Moment, House & Garden, and Private Fears in Public Places.
