"He's done it again, Ayckbourn's 21st comedy is his smoothest yet."
Scarborough Evening News

Joking Apart by Alan Ayckbourn

Like all Ayckbourn plays, 'Joking Apart' is packed taut with maliciously funny observations of human foibles, teasing and toying with the audience. Gently nudging the mood from languor to frenzy and back again as relationships are imperceptibly intertwined.

Played out in a back garden over 12 years, a near perfect couple play host to smug Scandinavians, hesitant vicars, neglected girlfriends, ageing lotharios and neurotic house wives.

Ayckbourn at his best !
