Black Stripe Theater proudly announces their third production of 2015, following their productions of Yasmine Reza’s ‘God of Carnage’ in January and David Mamet’s ‘A Life in the Theatre’ in March.
Our next play is ‘Confusions’ by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. ‘Confusions’ is a collection of five short interlinked one-act plays exploring the themes of loneliness and infidelity. Stressed and estranged mother, Lucy, copes with three young children and nosey neighbours, while her travelling salesman husband chats up single girls in a hotel bar. Pillar of the community Mrs Pearce discovers what her husband has really been up to on his business trip, and then tries to maintain some respectability at a fete organised by hapless and drunken scout leaders. This hilarious collection has something in it for everyone, and it’s suitable for chidren too!
And what’s more, each play will be directed by a different director! One show, 5 directors!
