Life of Riley by Alan Ayckbourn – In the Round!

After a roaring success with the frenetic farce, Cash on Delivery we continue our season with a more intimate introspective comedy, Life of Riley by Alan Ayckbourn. This is a fantastic play from one of our most prolific and successful playwrights. It is a comedy full of dark humour with a hint of slapstick and melancholy.

To make the prospect even more mouthwatering we are going to be doing this production “in the round”. For the uninitiated this means the stage and set are in the middle of the hall and the audience surround the production on all four sides. You will be inches from the actors and the action, feeling as if you are there with them through their trials and tribulations. This is the most intimate atmosphere for a production and one that suits this play down to the ground. For those of a nervous disposition have no fear there is no audience participation at all this is just a great way to make you feel the story envelop you.

Mark the dates in your diary for 8th to 11th April 2015.
