Trevor (Tom Turner) and Susannah (Sophie Roberts) are having marital problems - again. Rowing , making up, sulking, shouting, flirting, fighting - and always in other people's bedrooms. Their friends, their parents, their ex'es, and their in-laws all have their cosy bedrooms and their comfortable relationships thrown into turmoil by this tempestuous relationship.
During one chaotic night we see the action unfold in three separate bedrooms, as Trevor and Susannah wreak havoc on the sleep, security and soft furnishings of all those around them. And of course, the only ones who end up in harmony and in bed are - Trevor and Susannah.
Mining the same rich comic vein as A Chorus Of Disapproval and Noises Off, Ayckbourn's classic farce shows how four couples into three bedrooms simply won't go. Ingenious, inventive and incredibly funny.

The New Wolsey Theatre is concerned to hear of an apparent strategy by the East Anglian Daily Times to abandon all arts coverage.
The arts form a vital part not only of the Cultural Life of this region but of its economic prosperity as well. At a time of intense economic pressure Suffolk County Council recently protected the Arts from its programme of cuts precisely because it recognised the important contribution the Arts make to the region's economy.
