Relatively Speaking (streamed)

6 November 2020–14 November 2020

Company of Ten

Main Stage

Synopsis

It’s summer 1963. Greg and Ginny have been co-habiting for a month and things are getting edgy. Greg is bemused and hurt by gifts for Ginny of flowers and chocolates, which arrive hourly. He is perplexed by her decision to visit her parents without him. Actually, Ginny is going to the home of her boss Philip, to put an end to their affair.

Greg follows assuming he will meet her parents and ask to marry her. But – Philip thinks Greg is the lover over whom his wife, Sheila ostentatiously fantasises. The situation becomes increasingly complicated and hilarious.

As London Theatre says, ”Relatively Speaking’ is more complex than a simple comedy. Underlying the humour are issues about trust, honesty and commitment… themes which are as challenging and relevant today as ever they were.’ The Guardian called the play ‘delightfully done… due to Ayckbourn, whom we consistently underestimate. He is as funny as any of the classic comedy writers.’

Classic humour and just what we need in these challenging times!
