Synopsis


Whatever happened to the good old days?


Colin's fiancé has recently passed away.


His estranged friends never met her, but a gathering has been organised to cheer him up.


Some aren't too enthusiastic about the reunion, however …


The old gang try their best to console their pal through his grief, but there is huge tension in the air.


Dodgy deals, extramarital affairs, trivial illness and a paper towel holder all hinder the group as the cracks in their friendships begin to appear.


In fact, it's poor Colin who is the happiest of the lot!


A 1975 period piece of masterful dark comedy by Sir Alan Ayckbourn, Absent Friends is a bittersweet, hysterical look at love, friendship and the realisation of middle age.
