Absurd Person Singular

The BATS Spring 2019 production was ‘Absurd Person Singular’ a comedy by Alan Ayckbourn and directed by David Spear. The five evening performances were a great success. The hard work of all members of the BATS team; actors, props departments, make-up, lighting, marketing team and the front of house team made every night an entertaining evening. Lots of laughter from a very appreciative audience and many remarks on the tremendous performance of the talented cast.

The play is set on the Christmas Eve of three successive years and focuses on the relationships between each couple. “Running like a dark thread through the wild comedy of behind the scenes disasters at Christmas parties is the story of the advance of the Hopcrofts to material prosperity and the decline of the others. In the final stages the little man is well and truly on top with the others, Literally dancing to his tune.”
