Absurd Person Singular

Written By: Alan Ayckbourne

Performed: 2000

We visit three couples in their three kitchens on the Christmas Eves of three successive years: the lower-class Hopcrofts; their bank manager and his wife and their architect neighbour with a suicidal wife. 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 and the declines of the others.

In 'Absurd Person Singular' Alan Ayckbourne unpicks three marriages and examines the shifting balance of power between the three husbands. With some wonderfully comic scenes this play was performed by the Crondall Entertainers on 15th, 16th and 17th June 2000.
