About: Time of My Life

“Life can only be understood backward, but it must be lived forward” (Keirkegaard)

When Gerry Stratton plans a family meal out with his two grown up sons to celebrate his wife Laura’s 54th birthday and proposes an almost prophetic toast to ‘happy times’, he has no idea of the events that will unfold over the course of that evening. Their elder son, Glyn (played by John Pickard), is now back together with his long-suffering wife Stephanie, and their younger son, Adam has brought along his new girlfriend, an outrageous hairdresser, to meet the Stratton family for the first time.

Family skeletons intrude on cheerful domesticity as we get a glimpse of Glyn and Stephanie’s story unfolding in the future. Meanwhile at another table in the same restaurant, Adam and Maureen’s story is ingeniously played out in reverse chronology, with Gerry and Laura remaining in the present time unpicking their marriage and recalling first love. Time of My Life springs several surprises.

The original London production ran at The Vaudeville for twelve weeks in 1993 after its premier in Scarborough and received excellent reviews:

“Immensely subtle; ingenious” – The Guardian
“Funny, very funny, and not at all funny; quintessentially Ayckbourn” – The Times

It was revived last year under Ayckbourn’s direction at regional theatres but despite an Off-Broadway production, it never had a London run. Law Ballard directs the cast in a new intimate production featuring John Pickard (known for his role as Dominic Reilly in Hollyoaks and David Porter in BBC Sitcom; 2Point4 Children), together with Adam Wittek, Bonnie Adair, David Lucas, Joanna Pope, Joe Leather, Joey Bartram, Lucy Formby, Oliver Hewett and Tansy Adair
