Bedroom Farce by Alan Ayckbourn

 

This was performed by the club in October 2019 (24th - 26th) at the Memorial Hall in Brentwood.

Trevor & Susannah, whose marriage is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest : 3 couples whose relationships and tenuous at best.

Taking place in the 3 beleaguered couples bedrooms during an endless Saturday night of co-dependence and dysfunction, tempers and ruffled domestic murder, the players head for a funny but touching epiphany.

The technical team have also installed three ringing telephones (working bells), and three front door bells (controlled by a Raspberry pi computer).

The set is lit by eight spotlights (650W each) and two 500w fresnels at the front, plus a further six 500w fresnel units on the stage.
