Surprises

A new comedy written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn with its head in the future and its heart in the past.

Love stories yet to happen in a future filled with surprises. Who is the amorous stranger, Titus, who materialises in young Grace’s bedroom? Can she believe he is who he says he is? For her parents, Franklin and Martha, does love everlasting still hold true if death is postponed indefinitely? Can lawyer, Lorraine, who prides herself on her infallibility, have finally discovered the ideal partner, one who is also never wrong? Will lonely secretary Sylvia, after unhappy love affairs with everyone from deep sea divers to space shuttle pilots, ever find her Mr Right?
