Popular Comedy Drama

How the Other Half Loves

Following its critically acclaimed West End revival at the Haymarket, Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious tale of matrimonial mishaps and London’s funniest comedy of 2016 embarks on a national tour.

As Bob and Fiona clumsily try to cover up their affair, their spouses’ intervention only adds to the confusion. William and Mary Featherstone become hopelessly stuck in the middle, falsely accused of adultery and with no idea as to how they’ve become involved. The plot culminates in two disastrous dinner parties on successive nights, shown at the same time, after which the future of all three couples seems in jeopardy…

The star cast includes leading stage and TV actor ROBERT DAWS, best known for the hit series’ The Royal, Outside Edge and Roger Roger opposite CAROLINE LANGRISHE who starred in Lovejoy, Holby City and Judge John Deed. Joining them is MATTHEW COTTLE from the Bafta-nominated Game On who transfers direct from the West End production, SARA CROWE, whose West End credits include Absurd Person Singular and The Constant Wife but perhaps is best-loved for her role in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral, CHARLIE BROOKS, who became everyone’s favourite villain as Janine Butcher in EastEnders, and LEON OCKENDEN, who currently plays Will in Coronation Street.
