Feel the farce this summer
Published at 13:50, Thursday, 03 May 2012
THEATRE by the Lake’s summer season kicks off later this month with Alan Ayckbourn’s Bedroom Farce.
A wickedly funny comedy about marriage set in three bedrooms, the show takes to the stage of the main house at the Keswick theatre from Tuesday May 22.
Bedroom Farce was the play in which Ayckbourn, a favourite playwright with Theatre by the Lake audiences, discovered that, if you have four couples on stage but only three bedrooms to put them in, someone will always be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Expect to laugh a lot – and think a bit too.
Trevor and Susannah are having a row and they don’t care where they have it – under the coats on the bed at Malcolm and Kate’s house-warming, with pilchards on toast in bed with the in-laws or on top of Nick in bed with a bad back.
The 14-strong summer season cast will be performing A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen in the studio, and the two plays open simultaneously – a feat that very few theatres have ever attempted.
The show runs until November, with evening performances at 8pm and selected matinee performances at 2pm. Tickets are available from the venue’s box office.
