FEATURES / CONTAINS

Cutting Approved for Competition

Bare Stage/Simple Set

Confusions is actually a set of five interlinked one act plays: Mother Figure, Drinking Companion, Between Mouthfuls, Gosforth's Fete and A Talk in the Park,  Each play deals riotously, but with sharply pointed undertones, with human eccentricities and the human dilemma of loneliness; a mother unable to escape from baby talk, a disastrous fete, an unsuccessful seduction attempt, a fate fraught dinner encounter and the final play sums up with five self immolated characters on park benches.


REVIEWS

"Buoyant ... sad, sharp and funny." - London Guardian

"Runs the gamut of comic technique from faintly pathetic situation comedy to outright farce.... Ayckbourn has demonstrated once again that even in a trivial situation he can hold the attention with his matchless ear for conversational speech, and in untrivial situations shows himself a comic writer of immortal quality." - London Financial Times
