Relatively Speaking

By Alan Ayckbourn

 

Presented by New Penny Theatre Company

 

  

New Penny Theatre Company’s new production continues their trademark high quality entertainment at the Elgiva after Noises Off last year.


Greg only met Ginny a month ago but has already made up his mind that she’s the girl for him. When she tells him that she’s going to visit her parents, he decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand. Following a scribbled address, he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast, the only thing is – they’re not Ginny’s parents.

With a delightful tangle of deceit and misunderstanding, a quartet of crafted characters and an agile plot, this theatrical masterpiece established Alan Ayckbourn as synonymous with theatre.

Beautifully crafted, wonderfully funny and charmingly English, Relatively Speaking was Alan Ayckbourn’s first great West End success and turned him into a household name. When the show opened at the Duke of York’s Theatre in 1967, the critics hailed the arrival of a great new comic talent.

 

“As funny as anything Ayckbourn has ever written”'
The Times

 

'The most brilliant comedy of misunderstandings to have been written in the past 40 years'
Daily Telegraph

 

'Two hours of continuous laughter'
The Guardian

 

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Samuel French ltd
