next at the pear

by Alan Ayckbourn

September 12 - October 5, 2014

This daring production is a Regional Premiere at the Pear!

A theatrical event not to be missed: two separate but interlocking comedies that take place simultaneously, with one cast performing both shows in two different theaters at the same time.

Teddy and Trish Platt are hosting the annual May Fete for the village. Friends, family, lovers, politicians, a French movie star-- and, will it rain? 

Each play alone offers a hilarious romp around English manners, but together they add up to a theatrical experience unlike any other. While the actors race from House (the Pear in Unit K) to Garden (Pear Two, in Unit H!), the audience stays put, seeing each production one at a time, in either order. Both plays abound with Ayckbourn’s famous wit and creativity.
