The Stevenage Lytton Players

Alan Ayckbourn's
Absurd Person Singular

April 26th - April 29th 2006

The Lytton Theatre Stevenage

Director Bob Sage.

The Stevenage Lytton Players Spring 2006 Drama Production was Alan Ayckbourn's classic comedy Absurd Person Singular which was performed at the Lytton Theatre.

We visit three couples in their kitchens on the Christmas Eves of three successive years. First the "lower-class" but very much up-and-coming Hopcrofts in their bright new-pin, gadget-filled kitchen - anxiously giving a little party to their bank manager and his wife, and an architect neighbour. Then the architect and his wife in their neglected untidy flat, Lastly, the bank manager and his wife in their large, slightly modernised, old-Victorian style kitchen. Running like a darker thread through the wild comedy of behind-the-scenes disasters at Christmas parties is the story of the advance of the Hopcrofts to material prosperity and independence - and the decline of the others. In the final stages, the little man is well and truly on top, with the others, literally and unnervingly, dancing to his tune.
