Watford Palace Theatre Company presents

Absurd Person Singular

By Alan Ayckbourn Director Brigid Larmour Designer Amy Jane Cook Lighting Designer Jamie Platt Composer Anne Dudley Sound Designer Roger Dudley Assistant Director Vedi Roy Movement Co-ordinator Vedi Roy

Brigid is a huge fan of comedy, and after directing two wonderful Ayckbourns, two joyous Shakespeares, and four sold-out pantos, she's decided it's time to bring you this vintage comic gem!

It's Britain on the making 1971 and backstage at the party, three marriages are in the pressure cooker.

Sidney wants to play party games, but he also needs a loan from Ronald. Marion wants to go home, but definitely needs another drink. Eva would (literally) rather be dead, but Geoffrey's certain she'll be happier once he's left her. Meanwhile Jane's still in her marigolds, desperately trying to keep the kitchen ship-shape.

A hilarious vintage gem from a master of comedy.

We're thrilled to announce that Palace Pantomime stars Jill McAusland and Terence Frisch will be reuniting to lead the cast in this hilarious new production. Book early to enjoy this comic feast, full of 70's kitsch and marital misunderstandings...
