A new comedy written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn

Josh is keen to introduce his fiancée Sara to his parents – Lord and Lady Meizner; but as they are deceased, this should have posed a problem….   Enter Josh’s wicked Uncle Lance who has gifted him a state-of-the-art “Capture” visit to the past enabling him to revisit his family home whenever he likes.

Celebratory champagne flows but family secrets are also spilled in this new comedy by the country’s most beloved playwright.

Tanya-Loretta Dee
Sarah Coote, his fiancée
Terence Booth

“The drama boasts some wry observations. Universally strong performances too, from the five strong cast” *** The Telegraph

“In his 88th play, Alan Ayckbourn has lost none of his ability to depict an idyllic family scenario in which it transpires that sunlit-bathed happiness is spiked with delusion, discord and — on this occasion — vodka.” **** The Times
