Description

First produced in 1992, Time of My Life is the 44th play written by England’s most prolific playwright, Sir Alan Ayckbourn. Mr. Ayckbourn confesses to being a “terrible eavesdropper” in restaurants and it is this habit that led directly to the writing of*_ *_Time of My Life, a play where the audience members are the eavesdroppers, witnessing the traumas of an apparently normal family. 

The story revolves around a family dinner at their favorite restaurant organized by successful businessman Gerry Stratton to celebrate his wife Laura’s 54th birthday. Their grown sons, Glyn and Adam are also present. Glyn is with his long suffering wife Stephanie; Adam has brought along his new girlfriend, Maureen, an outrageous hairdresser.

It is after the dinner breaks that the play takes off in three different directions simultaneously with all the action taking place in the same restaurant. The parents remain in present time, disclosing secrets which redefine their relationship. The oldest son’s story moves forward in time over the course of two years, exposing a troubled marriage and a failing business. The youngest son’s story moves backwards in time over the course of two months, revealing the beginnings of a relationship and the joy that comes with falling in love.

David J. Miller directs Maureen Adduci, Michael Steven Costello, Gene Dante, Margarita Martinez, Glen Moore, Evan Sanderson and Ellen Soderberg.
