Join the Hopcrofts, Jacksons and Brewtser-Wrights in this revival of Alan Ayckbourn’s 1972 classic British Christmas comedy, Absurd Person Singular, brought to you by the renowned British theatre company – Dick & Lottie.
Set in three kitchens over three Christmases, the play charts the relentless rise of the socially aspiring Hopcrofts at the expense of two other couples.
Last Christmas, the Hopcrofts’ seasonal drinks party for a few select friends and guests turned out a near disaster.
This Christmas, round at the Jacksons’ it’s been an even worse chapter of accidents.
What on earth is going to happen next year when they all meet up at the Brewster-Wrights’?
Alan Ayckbourn’s classic 1972 comedy of three kitchens, Christmas catastrophes and calculated social climbing is presented here in a sparkling new revival.

“Audiences were rolling about…a must.” - Time Out
“Terrific tragicomedy” - The Times
“The Dick and Lottie Company were founded with the specific intention of solely producing plays of mine. I ask you, what is there not to love about them? I wish them every success with their New York adventure.”- Sir Alan Ayckbourn CBE
“I believe Dick & Lottie is creating possibly the most Ayckbourn-literate audience outside of the playwright’s home town of Scarborough”- Simon Murgatroyd – Alan Ayckbourn’s official Archivist
