Key for Two by John Chapman & Dave Freeman
Directed by Marilyn Adams
In this wickedly amusing play by two master craftsmen of comedy, Harriet, a divorcee living in an elegant flat in Brighton, solves her financial problems by entertaining two married gentlemen callers on different days of the week. Each man thinks he is the only one in Harriet’s life, and Harriet orchestrates their comings and goings with elegant artistry. The scheme faces collapse when her friend Anne, whose marriage is teetering, arrives at the flat hotly pursued by her husband. Unfortunately, one of Harriet’s lovers is confined to her bed with a sprained ankle and the second lover turns up unexpectedly, closely followed by two irate wives in search of their itinerant husbands. The indescribable confusion that ensues builds to a rich complexity of mistaken identity, splendidly farcical situations and a climax of comic wizardry.
The play reading will take place on Tuesday 21st November from 7.30pm at the theatre, and the auditions will be on Monday 4th December, also from 7.30pm. There are parts for 3 males and 4 females.
Box office will open on Monday 19th February from 10am to 12noon daily (not Sundays) until the end of the play.
