Time of My Life

Event image

by Alan Ayckbourn
Welcome to Ernesto’s restaurant ‘Essa de Calvi’, where a table has been reserved for his old and valued customers – the Stratton family.
Successful, self-made man, Gerry Stratton, is facing the recession by being creative with the family business cash flow; his self-centred wife Laura is hinting at an affair; their older son Glyn and long-suffering daughter-in-law Stephanie are trying to patch up their failing marriage for the sake of his parents; and their younger son Adam has chosen tonight to introduce the new love of his life – an outrageous hairdresser called Maureen. 
As the dinner draws to a close the action splits; we watch as Gerry and Laura settle down for a very late-night drink with Ernesto; we see how Adam met Maureen and how Stephanie copes after Glyn has one affair too many.  What happens after the party is shocking and will affect the whole family; but the restaurant will carry on, staffed as it is by Ernesto’s eccentric family. Ayckbourn in full flight; side-splittingly funny one moment and tragic the next.
