Nod to Kidderminster in Alan Ayckbourn's latest play
7:50am Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
OLIVIER award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn has given a nod to Kidderminster in the title of his latest play.
The Kidderminster Affair is one of two short comedies written and directed by Mr Ayckbourn called Farcicals.
The two plays are currently being performed for the first time at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough.
When asked why he chose the named Kidderminster Mr Ayckbourn simply replied: “I just liked the name.”
The Kidderminster Affair is about sexual intrigue at Teddy’s garden barbecue. It is described as “a frivolous comedy of fun, infidelity and food fights”.
Teddy is hiding the truth about Kidderminster to his wife Lottie as well as his secret liaison with his neighbour Penny.
The second one-act play is called Chloë With Love and follows a difficult period in Teddy’s marriage to Lottie.
Mr Ayckbourn is an Olivier and Tony Award-winning playwright who has written 77 plays, more than half of which have been produced in London's West End as well as around the world.
The two shows can be seen individually or as a double bill at the Scarborough theatre until October 4.
