How the Other Half Loves - UK Edition $12.99

Alan Ayckbourn

Published by Samuel French Ltd

3 Male 3 Female

There are three couples in this play, the men all working for the same firm ...

One of the younger men is having an affair with the wife of the oldest, and when each returns home suspiciously late one night or early one morning they invent a story about having to spend some time smoothing domestic matters in the home of the third couple

Both living rooms are shown in the single set, and both share a common dining room which takes on a character of its own as it serves two dinners simultaneously on two different nights

Of course, the third couple have to show up to put the fat in the fire, but that complication only adds to the fun of this famous farce

"A theatrical adroitness as clever as tennis at its best" ~ N.Y. Times

"You can go into the Royale Theatre stone cold sober and come out a couple of hours later drunk from laughter" ~ UPI

"A comedy of ingenuity and verve.... A farce of remarkable originality" ~ Herald Tribune
