"The Revengers' Comedies": "A hugely entertaining pitch that recalls the old movies to which it frequently pays homage - "Strangers on a Train", "Rebecca", "Kind Hearts" and "Coronets" - and expands after intermission to reveal an immensely disturbing vision of contemporary middle-class England poisoned by the rise of economic ruthlessness and the collapse of ethics". ("New York Times"). "Things We Do for Love": The author of this title won Lloyds Private Banking Playwright of the Year Award. "One of his best, his most shockingly and uproariously funny: a cruel and hilarious masterpiece of tragic comedy and comic tragedy". (Sunday Times). "House & Garden": "The triumph of his ingenuity lies in the fact that you have to see both plays ...A second time round, in whichever order you take them, characters will deepen, while those you know become the background. It is a superb Ayckbourn joke that a comedy about non-communication should depend on the sharpest communication skills". ("Sunday Times").
Alan Ayckbourn is the most widely performed of all living playwrights, with a prolific back catalogue of work which has been translated into 40 languages and performed throughout the world. He has received many national and international awards. He was appointed a CBE in 1987, and in 1997 received a knighthood for his services to theatre.
