'Time Of My Life 'by Alan Ayckbourn

When Gerry Stratton plans a family meal out with his two grown up sons to celebrate his wife’s 54th birthday and proposes an almost prophetic toast to ‘happy times’, he has no idea of the events that will unfold over the course of that evening. Their elder son, Glyn is now back together with his long-suffering wife Stephanie, and their younger son, Adam has brought along his new girlfriend, an outrageous hairdresser, to meet the Stratton family for the first time.

Family skeletons intrude on cheerful domesticity as we get a glimpse of Glyn and Stephanie’s story unfolding. Meanwhile at another table in the same restaurant, Adam and Maureen’s story is ingeniously played out in reverse chronology, with Gerry and Laura remaining in the present time unpicking their marriage and recalling first love.

Set in three different time zones in a small Italian restaurant in Northern England, Ayckbourn’s play explores life’s comic and tragic moments and of the need to ‘live in the moment’.

Law Ballard directs the cast featuring John Pickard (Dominic Reilly in Hollyoaks and David Porter in BBC Sitcom 2point4 Children), together with Adam Wittek, Bonnie Adair, David Lucas, Joanna Pope, Joe Leather, Joey Bartram, Lucy Formby, Oliver Hewett and Tansy Adair.
