Funny, touching and clever * Independent * Confusions becomes the middle-England equivalent of Schnitzler's pass-the-pox satire La Ronde, in which only the laughter is infectious. * Guardian *About the Author:
Alan Ayckbourn was born in 1939 and has over seventy plays and productions to his name. He worked all over the world but has focused on the West End where he has also run his own theatre company. Major successes include, Absurd Person Singular (1975), a black comedy often considered his most perfect work. It was first performed in 1972 at the Stephen Joseph theatre, Scarborough, where Ayckbourn was artistic director between 1972 and 2009. Other plays include: Bedroom Farce (1975), the title of a two-act comedy, first performed in 1977 at the National Theatre; Just Between Ourselves (1976); Way Upstream (1982); A Chorus of Disapproval (1984); Woman in Mind (1985); A Small Family Business (1987); Man Of The Moment (1988); House & Garden (1999); and Private Fears in Public Places (2004).
