Lichfield Players to perform another Alan Ayckbourn piece at the Garrick

Following their near sell-out production of Season’s Greetings in February 2011, the Lichfield Players return to Alan Ayckbourn this new year when they present his hilarious comedy about four couples and their antics behind closed doors.

Bedroom Farce, which promises a peek into not just one bedroom but three simultaneously, runs at the Lichfield Garrick from January 30 for four nights.

“January can be a fairly bleak month with all the excitement of Christmas and New Year over, and we wanted to put on a show that promises plenty of laughter and a really great night out,” said director Barrie Atchison.

“Bedroom Farce has bedroom-hopping, celebrations, an illicit kiss and DIY catastrophe not to mention sparkling dialogue and a maelstrom of disaster left by dysfunctional couple Trevor and Susannah in their wake.

“And although it’s set in the 70s, Ayckbourn’s comically truthful portrayal of relationships means that everyone in the audience will identify with characters or their domestic scenarios at some point during course of the play.”

Bedroom Farce focuses on four couples’ incident-packed antics over the course of one evening. Ernest and Delia come home after a disastrous meal to celebrate their wedding anniversary in bed with pilchards. Malcolm and Kate are getting ready for a big house-warming do. Jan’s invited but she’s at home with injured Nick who’s stuck in bed. Start the party and throw in the marital disasters of Trevor and Susannah and it’s not long before they weave in and out of other couples’ bedrooms with chaotic effect!

The Lichfield Players present Bedroom Farce at the Lichfield Garrick from January 30 to February 2. Tickets are available from the box office on 01543 412121 or by visit www.lichfieldgarrick.com.
