Bedroom Farce

An Oldham Coliseum Theatre and Harrogate Theatre Production

Delia and Ernest. Malcolm and Kate. Jan and Nick. Susannah and Trevor.

Three bedrooms and four couples makes for one chaotic night.

Funny, gripping and acutely observed, Alan Ayckbourn’s sophisticated comedy lifts the lid on the secrets of middleclass marriage. Over the course of one night, one outrageously selfish couple parade their problems around the bedrooms of three other couples, exposing the cracks in other people’s marriages as well as their own. Tightly written, both funny and sad, Bedroom Farce explores the different pressures of relationships at their different stages, slicing deep into the soul of suburbia.
