Alan Ayckbourn is an Olivier and Tony Award winning playwright who has written 79 plays, more than half of which have been produced in London's West End as well as around the world.

Synopsis: When Gerry Stratton plans a family meal out with his two grown up sons to celebrate his wife Laura’s 54th birthday and proposes an almost prophetic toast to ‘happy times’, he has no idea of the events that would unfold over the course of that evening. Their elder son, Glyn, is now back together with his long-suffering wife Stephanie, and their younger son, Adam, has brought along his new girlfriend, an outrageous hairdresser, to meet the Stratton family for the first time.

Family skeletons intrude on cheerful domesticity as we get a glimpse of Glyn and Stephanie’s story unfolding in the future scenes. Meanwhile at another table in the same restaurant, Adam and Maureen’s story is ingeniously played out in reverse chronology, with Gerry and Laura remaining in the present time unpicking their marriage and recalling first love. Time of My Life springs several surprises.

Featuring John Pickard as Glyn (known as Dominic Reilly in Hollyoaks, and David Porter in BBC sitcom 2point4 Children), Time of My Life plays for a limited run at the Tabard Theatre.

“Funny, very funny, and not at all funny;
quintessentially Ayckbourn”
