Private Fears in Public Places

17th – 25th June 2011

Love. United in hope, divided they live

This is a special notice 1...something that may be of interest to an audience

Six characters individually confront their emotional isolation as their lives intertwine. Ayckbourn finds a darkness in modern society that he only ever hinted at in his previous works — and still finds time to make us laugh. The author described this play as “following fragments of the characters’ lives as they collide with each other”.


Tickets are on sale now for just £10.

School groups pay only £5 per seat. Teachers interested in booking seats should contact our Education Coordinators Cindy Lawford and Elliot Brown Contact education team to find out about available workshops and talks on the play.
