Absurd Person Singular by Alan Ayckbourn
A classic Alan Ayckbourn Christmas comedy filled with festive cheer

Three Christmases, three kitchens and three wildly incompatible couples provide the ingredients for this hilarious slice of festive cheer from Alan Ayckbourn.

Absurd Person Singular peeps behind the kitchen door at three Christmas parties revealing hysterical happenings but also the changing fortunes of its party hosts.  There’s the ‘lower class’ but very much up and coming Hopcrofts, in their bright new, gadget filled kitchen, keen to impress with a little party for their bank manager and his wife and an architect neighbour. Then there’s the architect himself and his wife in their neglected, untidy flat with a somewhat wild and aggressive dog! Lastly there’s the bank manager and his wife in their freezing cold, large and slightly modernised, old Victorian style kitchen.

Chaos reigns as social climbing turns into domestic disaster in this agonisingly funny Christmas comedy.

Absurd Person Singular won the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy when it was first performed and is now seen as an Ayckbourn classic.
