Absurd Person Singular play is
Absurd Person Singular play is set over three Christmases in the kitchens of three couples: Sidney Hopcroft, an ambitious tradesman, and his submissive wife Jane; architect and adulterer Geoffrey Jackson and his depressed wife, Eva; Ronald Brewster-Wright, a banker, and his alcoholic wife Marion. The three couples range from working to upper class.
First premiered in 1972, this tragi-comedy continues to be performed around the world. Based on the idea that farce and tragedy are opposite sides of the same coin, it still resonates today. The play’s themes include alcoholism, depression, and the workings of greed-is-good capitalism. Such dark subject matter shouldn ́t be funny but it is – thanks to Ayckbourn ́s sharp observational skills and fantastic writing.
