Absurd Person Singular

2014-2015 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Absurd Person Singular - Alan Ayckbourn
Opening: Vassiliko Theatre, 14/11/2014

One of Alan Ayckbourn’s most successful comedies, where three couples meet in their kitchens for the Christmas Eve in three successive years, and through discussions and confessions, they reveal their secret passions and fears. Their frenzy for professional advancement and social approval, the alienation and the difficulties in the interpersonal relationships are the main themes of this hilarious comedy. Ayckbourn’s play is a satirical elegy for the bourgeoisie and its morality that offers laughter, but also arouses contemplation and emotions.
