About this show

The brilliantly observed social comedy of Alan Ayckbourn returns to ACT in this tour de force for two actors playing six characters. Trapped in a crushing marriage to the alcoholic headmaster of a suburban English prep school, Celia Teasdale makes the momentous decision to assert her independence by catering the school sports day in partnership with a very peculiar gardener. Will her leap of faith pay off? Will she find adventure or misadventure? A wise and witty consideration of the relationship between our desire for change and the capricious ways that life interprets it for us.
