Confusions & Hero’s Welcome

About This Show

A popular Alan Ayckbourn classic in repertory with one of his newest works.

Confusions: Since its premiere in 1974, Confusions has become one of the most popular and studied plays of the last 40 years. From a devoted and isolated mother to her unfaithful travelling salesman husband, through a solicitous waiter to well-heeled diners and an utterly shambolic garden fete, human frailty is laid bare as one hilarious situation after another unfolds.

Hero’s Welcome: A decorated war hero returns to his boyhood stomping ground with a new young bride, but is all as it seems? Once the welcome flags have stopped waving, few of his friends seem particularly happy to see him back. Murray’s declared intention of staying put and settling down threatens to stir up all sorts of old rivalries and resentments. Suddenly the couple, in search of peace, find themselves once more in the firing line.
