Relatively Speaking

About

Greg only met Ginny a month ago but has already made up his mind that she's the girl for him.

When she tells him that she's going to visit her parents, he 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.

Beautifully crafted, wonderfully funny and charmingly English, Relatively Speaking was Alan Ayckbourn's first great West End success and turned him into a household name. When the show opened at the Duke of York's Theatre in 1967, the critics hailed the arrival of a great new comic talent.
