Next Production: How The Other Half Loves

Friday 30th January to Saturday 7th February 2015 at 7.30 pm

By Alan Ayckbourn, directed by Martin Elson

How The Other Half Loves

This famous farce is a clever, funny and beautifully crafted play, which juggles time and space to present the hopelessly entwined lives and loves of three married couples. Both living rooms are shown in the ingenious single set. They share a common dining room which takes on a character of its own as each of the adulterous parties hosts a dinner simultaneously on two different nights.

Of course, the third couple show up to put the fat in the fire, but that complication only adds to the fun. Ill-informed mischievous gossip inevitably leads to a matrimonial mix-up, noisy quarrels, shouting matches and even blows, at what should have been a gaily convivial evening. As relations between the partners deteriorate, matters become more confused and only the truth can restore order to chaos in this hilarious play.

"A theatrical adroitness as clever as tennis at its best." The New York Times

Alan Ayckbourn must be the most ingenious writer of situation comedy in our day." Financial Times

Information for Volunteers

To all members and supporters of the Wharf Theatre:

The Theatre is run entirely by volunteers and, if you don't fancy acting on stage, there are always lots of opportunities for you to help out with vital and rewarding responsibilities off the stage, both behind the scenes and in the Front of House.  Each performance requires normally around eleven volunteers to help run the box office, bar and refreshments, manage the stage, props and actors, run the lighting and sound effects required and carry out the essential duties of perfomance licencee.  In addition, there are numerous opportunites to help design, build and decorate sets, as well as to compose publicity material and help with the distribution and management of publicity material (including the content of this website). 

If you enjoy theatre but do not want to appear on stage, why not double your enjoyment by joining one of our off-stage teams to help provide critical supporting skills that the Theatre needs.  Training is provided for these responsibilities, and you will not only meet similarly enthusiastic people but also become a valuable part of the Theatre family.

You do not need to be a member to come and have a look and to try out these tasks, although if you wish to pursue technical and back-stage work for productions you will ultimately require membership.  To find out more, please e-mail the Chairman or any of the Management team via the Contacts page.
