Absent Friends by Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Malcolme Littler
Will be performed 11th - 15th December 2012 at The Shed.

Absent Friends  - Diana and Evelyn

Colin's friends are determined to comfort him in his grief over the death of his fiance - a girl they have never met.

Absent Friends  -  Evelyn and Colin

They arrange a tea-party for him and are understandably on edge wondering what to say to him as they await his arrival.

Absent Friends  - Diana, Colin, Margaret and Paul

Their unease, however, has deeper roots as they are all kept together by a mixture of business and cross-marital emotional ties and by the time Colin arrives their tension contrasts dramatically with his cheerfully relaxed air.
