How The Other Half Loves

How The Other Half Loves

4.5 (8) · Contemporary

Alan Ayckbourn’s farcical tale of matrimonial mishaps, How The Other Half Loves receives its first major West End revival this spring, directed by Alan Strachan.

Overview

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…

Fondly loved as one of his most popular plays; Ayckbourn’s tale of social graces and personal misunderstanding remains one of the celebrated writer’s most famous comedies.
