Joking Apart
For Richard and Anthea everything in life just falls into place. Perhaps it’s inevitable that the others suffer by comparison. Quiet misery, unrequited love and jealousy play their part in this painfully funny comedy. Laugh until it hurts at this 40th anniversary production of an Ayckbourn classic.

Better Off Dead
Highly irascible author Algy Waterbridge is hard at work on his 33rd crime novel featuring blunt Yorkshire cop DCI Tommy Middlebrass. With constant interruptions, it’s almost the last straw when old acquaintance Gus Crewe turns up to interview him with alarming consequences. Alan Ayckbourn's latest play is a comedy of confusion about an grumpy old man who might not be so grumpy after all.
