The Boathouse Theatre is pleased to announce that our next production, Relatively Speaking written by Alan Ayckbourn, has been cast and we are looking forward to the production hitting the boards from 15th -25th of September 2021
About the show:
Greg only met Ginny a month ago, but he knows they’re meant for each other. When she announces that she’s going to visit her parents, Greg decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden, but the only thing is – they’re not Ginny’s parents.
The play that made Alan Ayckbourn’s name is an enduringly funny comedy of mistaken identities and excruciating misunderstandings.
Tickets will go on sale in August - we will keep you posted.
The cast is as follows.
Greg – Aidan Morrow
Aidan is one of our up-and-coming actors having started his Boathouse career in Anne Boleyn, followed by nell Gwynne. Greg is his first leading role.
