Three middle-aged couples are trapped in the suburban way of life bored with themselves, their spouses and their daily routine of job or family or household chores. They are six very ordinary people, but they are portrayed with sensitivity and sympathy. There's excitement and revelations, yet in the end they must return to their routine. What the author has achieved is a wry comment on present day society and presents his audiences with a mirror of themselves to delight and entertain. Middle Age Spread was produced in London's West End to great acclaim.
First produced on London by John Gale for Lisden Productions Ltd at the Lyrics Theatre, London on October 17th, 1979. Directed by Robert Kidd, with set by Alan Tagg.
