How The Other Half Loves - Until 25 June 2016

Before The Norman Conquests and before Bedroom Farce, even before Absurd Personal Singular, Alan Ayckbourn presented his ninth play How The Other Half Loves at the Lyric Theatre. The year was 1970 and most of his best known work was yet to come, but with the show he presented a farce of large proportions as infidelity and mistaken-accused affairs come to light.

It’s now 46 years since its first West End appearance but How The Other Half Loves can finally be seen by the modern generation of theatregoers as it is revived at the Theatre Royal Haymarket with Alan Strachan directing and Bill Kenwright producing.

Though How The Other Half Loves got its West End premiere in 1970 it had previously been seen in Scarborough the previous year, where many of Ayckbourn’s plays debuted. It would subsequently be staged in New York as well.

As the ninth of his full-length plays it holds a special place early in the career of one of the country’s most renowned playwrights, whose work has continued to engage with audiences in the decades since. Since the late 1950s he has presented work like Absurd Personal Singular, A Chorus of Disapproval (which earned him a 1985 Laurence Olivier Award) and Private Fears In Public Places, amongst others. His most recent work has included shows like Roundelay from 2014, Arrivals & Departures from 2013 and Neighbourhood Watch from 2011.

The story introduces us to an array of characters who become embroiled in an unfortunate situation as one affair leads to accusations leads to two awkward dinner parties. One such couple is the Featherstones (William and Mary) who have found themselves in strange circumstances when they are wrongly accused of cheating. They shouldn’t have gotten involved in the situation with Bob and Fiona who have been trying to hide their actual affair, whilst their partners only make matters worse.

So audiences will be thrilled to revisit How The Other Half Loves as they get a glimpse of a lesser known play from the nation’s most celebrated playwright. The production will entertain the crowds at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from Thursday 31st March 2016 (previews from Wednesday 23rd March 2016).
