    Synopsis: 

    A comedy in four parts about an unremarkable man and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him over sixty years; and of the equally remarkable old manor house that saw and heard it all happen. From his first unsettling encounter as a very young man in 1925 to an unexpected reunion late in life, Anthony Spates' romantic progress is charted in this hilarious and gently touching comedy. The fireworks, love, and loss come at the funniest moments in this brand new classic Ayckbourn comedy.

    ‘A Brief History of Women,’ an Alan Ayckbourn Comedy of Tragedies

    May 2, 2018: “As funny as a heart attack,” goes the phrase, and it is generally used to indicate anything but merriment. But a change of context can work wonders with a familiar figure of speech. If you were to say “as funny as a heart attack in an Alan Ayckbourn play,” you would mean that a situation is so painfully, awkwardly sad that it is downright hilarious.
