When first performed,?Relatively Speaking?was described as “a superbly constructed …play that gave its audiences total and continuous delight, and established Alan Ayckbourn as the brightest new comic talent in the theatre”. Nearly forty years on, the play is as fresh and as funny as when it was first seen.
Ginny has just ended an affair with an older man (Philip) and is now engaged to Greg. But Philip won’t take no for an answer so she visits him at his home to end it once and for all. But Greg, thinking she is visiting her parents, decides to surprise her and goes there himself. Meeting Philip’s wife, Sheila, he assumes she is Ginny’s mum; Philip thinks Greg is his wife?s young lover?
Opportunities for comic misunderstandings and confusion abound and Ayckbourn handles them with consummate skill. A classic Ayckbourn not to be missed.
