Quotes & Highlights
_"My Wonderful Day is one of the wittiest and most pristinely crafted of Mr. Ayckbourn’s dark farces."—_Wall Street Journal

Nine-year-old Winnie is off sick from school for the day, but has an essay to write about “My Wonderful Day.” What better opportunity than quietly seated unnoticed in a corner, while her pregnant mother busies herself cleaning the home of a British television celebrity? When her Mother goes into labor, Winnie’s left in the house alone with the celebrity, his mistress, his wife and his best friend, discovering a wealth of material for her essay. The bizarre and increasingly frenetic comings and goings of adults in the weird household where she’s a silent observer fuels an essay that shocks her mother, but provides endless entertainment for the audience along the way.
