ACT presents Ayckbourn’s comedy Relatively Speaking
February 6, 2012
The Guild will be filled with laughter this spring as ACT (a community theatre) stages the hit comedy Relatively Speaking by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. Directors are Paul Whelan and Brenda Porter and cast members include Ashley Clark, Adam-Michael James, Keir Malone and Barbara Rhodenhizer. The Host for the evenings will be Tony Welsh. The four performances will take place March 29, 30 and 31 at 7:30pm and April 1 at 2:00pm. Tickets will be available online at theguild.com or from the box office (902.620.3333) from March 13. Admission is $20 regular and $18 seniors/students/unwaged.
Alan Ayckbourn has written a total of 76 full length plays (the most recent of which opens in 2012) but this feather-light farce is probably his best known work. With its timeless combination of dramatic irony, misunderstandings and brilliant wit, it should keep audiences happy for a very long time.
Briefly, the story concerns a young man who unexpectedly turns up at the home of a middle-aged couple he mistakenly believes to be his girl friend’s parents. The remainder of the plot must remain a secret. Ayckbourn says that he wanted to make people laugh when their seaside summer holidays were spoiled by the rain and they came into the theatre to get dry. The popularity of Relatively Speaking over the years attests to his success!
You forgot your slippers!
