The classic Ayckbourn comedy is directed by Alan Strachan. Starring Nicholas le Prevost (My Fair Lady, Shakespeare In Love) opposite Jenny Seagrove (Judge John Deed, Appointment With Death, Diana), Jason Merrells (Lark Rise, Candleford, Cutting It and Waterloo Road), Andrea Lowe (DCI Banks). Joining them will be Matthew Cottle, from the BAFTA nominated Game On and most recently seen in Ayckbourn’s “A Small Family Business” at the National Theatre in 2014, and Gillian Wright (EastEnders). The Duke Of York's Theatre has been around for some time: it opened in 1892 as the Trafalgar Square Theatre, and was where Puccini first saw Madame Butterfly. It shortened its name to the Trafalgar Theatre in 1894, before becoming the Duke Of York's a year later to honour the future King George V. It was Grade II listed by English Heritage in September 1960.

"Alan Ayckbourn’s vintage comedy about adultery and male bullying is shockingly up to date."
