20-24 February 2018
Relatively Speaking gave Ayckbourn his first West End hit, starring Celia Johnson, Michael Hordern and the young Richard Briers (quite a cast for the debut of a twenty-something writer!) and Noel Coward congratulated him “on a beautifully constructed and very funny comedy”. History aside this is still a very funny play, reprised only four years ago with Felicity Kendal.
Greg only met Ginny a month ago but (despite strange slippers under the bed) has already made up his mind that she’s the one. 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. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden.
