Bedroom Farce

by Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Jim Covault & Dana Schultes

From one of the great modern playwrights.  Delia & Ernest are the parents of Trevor, who is married to Susannah, but used to date Jan, who is now married to Nick. So when Kate & Malcolm invite the two young couples over for a housewarming party, the stage is set for hysteria and heartbreak. Four couples, three bedrooms – what could possibly go wrong? Antics arise in this contemporary comedy about the uproarious and touching paths we tread when relationships begin to unravel.
