Absurd Person Singular

By Alan Ayckbourn.

"This niftily directed revival of one of his greatest and most daring comedies stands comparison with the great 1970s Ayckbourn productions" Daily Telegraph

Absurd Person Singular

This year's biggest West End comedy hit is set to take the UK by storm as Bill Kenwright's critically acclaimed "savagely funny", "seriously hilarious" and "dazzling" production of this classic comedy goes on tour.

It's party time at the Hopcrofts and the only present they want is to succeed in scaling the social ladder. Havoc ensues at the drinks party they hold to impress their high powered friends – but that is nothing compared with what happens over the next two years ....

The cast includes Sara Crowe (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Marc Bannerman (Eastenders), Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyle’s War), Deborah Grant (Bergerac) and many more.
