First performed in 2004, Private Fears in Public Places is a brilliant dark comedy which traces the lives of 6 Londoners confronting their fear of solitude as their lives intertwine over the course of a few days.

Does Nicola still love Dan?
Will Dan stop his endless pub-going days and look for a job?
Can Stewart, Nicola's real estate agent, be on the verge of an office romance with Charlotte?
What on earth is Charlotte up to on her 2nd shift job with her bedridden patient?
Will Imogen, Stewart's middle-aged sister, ever find true love in the personal ads?
Does Ambrose, Dan's bartender, have a secret life?

These are all combined with Ayckbourn's signature plot developments involving alcohol, dark secrets, sex and religion. The play is remarkable thanks to its superb construction, sharp observation and understated air of melancholy.

"A comedy about six Londoners leading lives of quiet desperation, it is rueful, funny, touching and altogether wonderful." - The New York Times

"One of his recent best… Ayckbourn has not lost his rare, undervalued gift for comic compassion." - The Guardian
