Saltford Drama Club’s next production is the hilarious comedy ”Relatively Speaking” by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. This was Alan Ayckbourn’s first West End hit and one which turned him into a household name.
The story follows Greg and Ginny, a young couple who have only been together a month but this doesn’t stop Greg from knowing she’s the girl for him. So much so that when she tells him she is visiting her parents, he decides this is the time to ask her father for his daughters’ hand. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden, but the only thing is – they’re not Ginny’s parents!
This obviously leads to misunderstanding and confusion and the situation becomes increasingly both complicated and hilarious.
Alan Ayckbourn is easily as funny as any of the classic comedy writers and in this early piece showed how prolonged misunderstanding can become a source of painful truth.
Relatively Speaking, directed by Corinne-anne Richards is being performed at Saltford Hall from Thursday 16th – Saturday 18th November 2017.
