Interior Set

Gerry Stratton has organized a family dinner with his sons Glyn and Adam at his favorite restaurant to celebrate his wife Laura's 54th birthday. Glyn is with his long suffering wife Stephanie; their marriage looks to be on firmer ground that it once was. Adam has brought along his new girlfriend, an outrageous hairdresser, and they are both eager to impress. Gradually, family skeletons intrude on the happy domestic scene: Glyn's unfaithfulness knows no bounds, the family transport business has been hit by the recession, and Laura has been unfaithful. Glyn's story is set more recently and Adam's further back in time, while at the center Gerry and Laura pick apart their marriage and recall first love.

I absolutely loved this play. Alan Ayckbourn captures the humor and light in the obscure thinking of the main couple as well as playing through the sons. I couldn't get enough because it reminded me so much of my own family, a lot of little things. Like my Grandma now by herself has 6 Corgies and is not certified but has narcissistic tendencies. Love this and can't wait to really start delving even deeper to unpack each character.
