How The Other Half Loves
Directed by Alan Strachan, How the Other Half Loves is a classic comedy of errors that revolves around two separate dinner parties. Whilst Frank and Fiona Foster share a distant relationship, Bob and Teresa Phillips are constantly arguing. Little do they know that they are engaged in affairs – with each other! Swearing their partners to secrecy, the couples both implicate the unknowing Featherstones, not realising that this will lead to a disastrous but hilarious climax.
How the Other Half Loves stars Nicholas Le Prevost (People, Bedroom Farce) as Frank Foster, Jenny Seagrove (Absurd Person Singular, Judge John Deed) as Fiona Foster, Jason Merrells (Emmerdale, Waterloo Road) as Bob Phillips, Andrea Lowe (DCI Banks) as Teresa Phillips, Gillian Wright (EastEnders) as Mary Featherstone and Matthew Cottle (Citizen Khan) as William Featherstone.
Produced by Bill Kenwright, How the Other Half Loves features costume design by Julie Godfrey. 2016 marks Alan Ayckbourn’s 57th year as a playwright, with over 80 plays under his belt.
