Absurd Person Singular: Dark Comedy by Alan Ayckbourn
The Footlight Club presents Olivier, Tony and Moliere Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn's 1972 play Absurd Person Singular. Three couples host Christmas Eve gatherings in their respective homes over three successive years. On the first holiday eve, "lower class" but very much up-and-coming Hopcrofts are in their bright new gadget-filled kitchen, anxiously hosting a small party for their bank manager and his wife and an architect neighbor. The following Christmas Eve finds the architect and his wife hosting a party in their now-neglected, untidy flat. The final Christmas Eve finds the the bank manager and his wife playing host in their large but clearly dated Victorian-style kitchen. The dark thread running through this wild comedy of behind-the-scenes party disasters is the changing fortunes of three married couples.
