"How The Other Half Loves" is a hilarious tale of matrimonial mishaps by Alan Ayckbourn.

Whilst Bob and Fiona are clumsily trying to cover up their affair, William and Mary find themselves falsely accused of adultery, with not a clue how they've suddenly become embroiled in Bob and Fiona's mess.

Everything comes to a head at two disastrous dinner parties, held on successive nights, but shown at the same time during the play, when all three couples find themselves teetering on the edge of disaster.

Fondly loved as one of his most popular plays; Ayckbourn’s tale of social graces and personal misunderstanding remains one of the celebrated writer's most famous comedies.
