MEDIA RELEASE: 5 November 2007


by Alan Ayckbourn

"You might as well talk to yourself!"

In five short interlinked plays, the master of British comedy Alan Ayckbourn takes a humorous look at the search for connection and love in a world that can sometimes be a very lonely place.

The young mother who babbles in baby-talk; the travelling salesman with an eye for the girls; the romantic dinner that goes disastrously wrong; the small-town community with secrets about to explode; and five strangers sharing four park benches. Nothing quite fits but no-one gives up trying!

CONFUSIONS is an excruciatingly funny revelation of the painful realities of modern life, layered with Ayckbourn's characteristic wit and sharp yet sympathetic observations.

new theatre's production of CONFUSIONS brings together five talented directors and the master of British comedy in a delightful night of laughter.

Directors include:
Adam Gelin, Lynden Jones, Lauren Pfitzner and Helen Tonkin

Cast includes:
John Bonaventura, Michael Harrs, Kendal Jones, Dave Kirkham, Anna Le Her, Richard Mason, David McLaughlin, Jan Langford Penny, Sarah Robinson, Samuel Rushton and Susannah Thompson
