Duke of York's Theatre
West End

Transferred from the Theatre Royal Haymarket

By huge demand Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious tale of matrimonial mishaps, How The Other Half Loves, directed by Alan Strachan is moving house to the Duke of York’s Theatre for a 12 week run.

As Bob and Fiona clumsily try to cover up their affair, their spouses’ intervention only adds to the confusion. William and Mary Featherstone become hopelessly stuck in the middle, falsely accused of adultery and with no idea as to how they’ve become involved. The plot culminates in two disastrous dinner parties on successive nights, shown at the same time, after which the future of all three couples seems in jeopardy…

The star cast includes Olivier Award nominated stage and screen actor Nicholas Le Prevost opposite Jenny Seagrove. Jenny starred in Ayckbourn’s Absurd Person Singular in the West End at the Garrick in 2007, and is best known for her role as ‘QC Jo Mills’ in ITV’s Judge John Deed. Also starring Jason Merrells – one of TV’s most popular actors from roles in Lark Rise to Candleford, Cutting It and Waterloo Road. 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 stars opposite Gillian Wright. Gillian is nationally known for her award-winning role as ‘Jean Slater’ in EastEnders.

Fondly loved as one of his most popular plays; Ayckbourn’s tale of social graces and personal misunderstanding remains one of the celebrated writer’s most famous comedies.
