Welcome to Theatre 62

Today: open auditions for Bedroom Farce.

Trevor and Susannah, whose marriage is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest – three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. The action takes place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples’ bedrooms during one endless Saturday night. Dysfunction, beds, tempers, and domestic order all are ruffled, leading the couples to reach a hilariously touching epiphany.

Bedroom Farce is a genuinely funny comedy set in the 1970s written by the ingenious Alan Ayckbourn.  It was given its London premiere at the National Theatre in 1977 and has undergone a number of frequent revivals with stars such as Richard Briers and June Whitfield.

After 18 months away, we’re pleased to be back this October with…

Set in the 1960s, the story follows young New Yorkers Carrie and Paul Bratter, fresh off their whirlwind honeymoon, as they begin married life together in a tiny fifth floor apartment. He is a conservative young lawyer, she is a free-spirited romantic. Throw in their meddling mother, their eccentric upstairs neighbour, and a hilarious sequence of misunderstandings that test the boundaries of their love, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for laughter.

Whether you would like to audition for a role or fancy trying your hand backstage (plenty of training available for those never-tried-before jobs) there is guaranteed to be something to satisfy that “need for theatre” that we’re all feeling these days.
