My mother used to say, "Delia, if S-E-X ever rears its ugly head,
close your eyes before you see the rest of it".
Ernest and Delia are going out but will wish they'd stayed in. Malcolm and Kate are staying in but will wish they'd gone out. Nick's having to stay in but wishes he could get out while Jan's getting out but would probably have been wiser to stay in. Trevor and Susannah are out for the night while everyone else wishes they'd stayed at home.
Four couples. Three bedrooms. Two neurotics. One long night of chaos. Alan Ayckbourn's classic comedy of mid 1970's marital disharmony brings together a bad back, pilchards in bed and the perils of flat pack furniture.
