Way Upstream - 17th to 20th May 2023
Thorpe Village Hall
by Alan Ayckbourn
What could be more pleasant than cruising through the picturesque English countryside? It is the early 1980s, and Keith and his business partner, Alistair, have decided to take their wives, June and Emma, on a cabin-cruiser holiday up the River Orb to Armageddon Bridge. The voyage combines the comedy that makes Ayckbourn one of the world's best loved playwrights with a thread of menace. The play is both very funny and very dark, so plenty for us to get our teeth into.
This is one of Ayckbourn's lesser known but equally well written plays and is set on the boat. On the river. On our little stage. We’ll manage.
