How the Other Half Loves - the 21st Century Comedy of Errors

About How The Other Half Loves

Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious tale of matrimonial mishaps, How the Other Half Loves, directed by Alan Strachan, is moving house to the Duke of York’s Theatre for just 12 weeks!

“Do you realise, Mrs Foster, the hours I’ve put into that woman?”

A story of two couples reminds us - still chillingly up-to-date - of the misfortunes of marriage. Bob and Fiona clumsily try to cover up their extramarital affair. However, their spouses’ intervention only adds to the turmoil as William and Mary Featherstone become stuck in the middle, and additionally, falsely accused of adultery. They seem to be the victims - as they have no idea how they’ve become involved. The plot culminates in two disastrous dinner parties on two following nights, taking place at the same time. After this, the future of all three couples seems in jeopardy…

The superstar cast includes Olivier Award nominee Nicholas le Prevost opposite Jenny Seagrove. Jenny starred in Ayckbourn’s Absurd Person Singular in the West End at the Garrick in 2007, and is well known for her role as ‘QC Jo Mills’ in ITV’s Judge John Deed. Jason Merrells - one of TV’s most popular actors from roles in Lark Rise to Candleford, Cutting It and Waterloo Road stars opposite Andrea Lowe famous for playing DS Annie Cabbot in the popular ITV series DCI Banks. Joining them will be Matthew Cottle, from the BAFTA nominated Game On, and most recently seen in Ayckbourn’s A Small Family Business at the National Theatre in 2014 stars opposite Gillian Wright. Gillian is nationally known for her award-winning role as ‘Jean Slater’ in EastEnders.
Fondly loved as one of his most popular plays, Ayckbourn’s tale of social graces and personal misunderstanding remains one of the celebrated writer’s most famous comedies.

Just a tremendous evening at the theatre. Just loved the play which we hadn't seen before. Thanks to the producers who revived it, the actors who embodied it so fully and of course to Ayckborn for being Ayckborn.
