Absent Friends by Alan Ayckbourn

London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (2 yr. Acting / all Stage Management)

Raz Shaw

Performances take place at the Lyric Hammersmith, W6 0QL

Diana, Paul, Evelyn, John and Marge are hosting a tea party for their estranged friend, Colin, to lift his spirits after the death of his fiancee. However, no sooner have the friends assembled than their good intentions give way to simmering resentment.

Alan Ayckbourn's celebrated domestic farce, revived last year at the Hold Pinter Theatre, parades the insecurities and failings of a group of middle class friends, who seem to be in far greater need of comfort than Colin.
