One secret love affair. Two disaster-bound dinner parties. Three couples headed for trouble.
Following its critically acclaimed West End revival, Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious tale of matrimonial mishaps and London’s funniest comedy of 2016, How The Other Half Loves, will open in Windsor before embarking on a national tour.
As Bob and Fiona clumsily try to cover up their affair, their spouses’ intervention only adds to the confusion. William and Mary Featherstone become hopelessly stuck in the middle, falsely accused of adultery and with no idea as to how they’ve become involved. The plot culminates in two disastrous dinner parties on successive nights, shown at the same time, after which the future of all three couples seems in jeopardy…
