Bedroom Farce


By Alan Ayckbourn


Tuesday 7th - Saturday 11th April 1981

"Bedroom Farce" is a play for four men and four women. Ernest and Delia go out to dinner to celebrate their wedding anniversary. When this is a failure they return home and prepare to celebrate with pilchards on toast in bed. Malcolm and Kate are preparing a housewarming party; Nick and Jan have been invited to this but Nick has hurt his back and prepares to rest quietly in bed. All three preparations are doomed, however, to disaster by the marital problems of Trevor (son of Ernest and Delia) and his wife, finally taking over the bedroom (and bed) of the long-suffering Malcolm and Kate. The three bedrooms are presented simultaneously on stage and the action flows in and out from one to the other during this hectic night.
