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.
