Talking Scarlet brings a stellar production of this classic play by revered playwright Alan Ayckbourn.

Ayckbourn’s play depicts the interplay between six characters over a weekend in the dining room as assistant librarian Norman tries to bring happiness to the lives of the three women present at the house with varying results.

Emotional fireworks and comic confusion descends on the members of an extended family who simultaneously despise each other and can’t get enough of each other. A cast including Anna Brecon (Emmerdale), Marcus Hutton (Brookside) and David Callister (The Bill) bring this high paced, classic modern comedy to the stage.
