Carr, Hart, Waterston, Whitehead Set for Westport's Relatively Speaking
The play was first professionally produced in America in 1970. In it, an unidentified pair of slippers found under a bed leads to a series of misunderstandings, mistaken identities, and alibis between two young lovers and a married, middle-aged couple. Ayckbourn is the author of over 70 plays, including Intimate Exchanges, now on view at 59E59 Theatres in New York City.
The design team for Relatively Speaking includes James Noone (sets), Laurie Churba (costumes), Kevin Adams (lighting), and Scott Killian (sound). Tillinger received a Tony Award nomination for Loot! and was most recently represented on Broadway by the Manhattan Theatre Club revival of Ayckbourn's Absurd Person Singular. His last directing assignment for Westport was The Drawer Boy.
