Knighted in 1997, he is the first British playwright to receive both Olivier and Tony Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Synopsis


“I think there might have been a certain amount of misunderstanding.”


Greg only met Ginny a month ago, but he knows they're meant for each other.


When she announces that she's going to visit her parents, Greg decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter's hand.


Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden, but the only thing is - they're not Ginny's parents.


The play that made Alan Ayckbourn's name in 1967 is an enduringly funny comedy of mistaken identities and excruciating misunderstandings.
