Starring ROBERT POWELL and LIZA GODDARD
Greg only met Ginny a month ago but has already made up his mind that she’s the girl for him. When she tells him that she’s going to visit her parents, he decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden, but the only thing is – they’re not Ginny’s parents.
Beautifully crafted, wonderfully funny and charmingly English, Relatively Speaking was Alan Ayckbourn’s first great West End success and turned him into a household name. When the show opened at the Duke of York’s Theatre in 1967, the critics hailed the arrival of a great new comic talent.
Robert Powell received multiple awards and a BAFTA nomination for his portrayal of Jesus in Franco Zeffirelli’s Jesus of Nazareth. His extensive stage performances include Alan Bennett’s Single Spies, Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell and most recently King Charles III.
Liza Goddard is one of the UK’s favourite actresses. Her extensive range of Ayckbourn credits includes Life of Riley, Communicating Doors, Season’s Greetings, Life and Beth and If I Were You. Television work includes cult classics Doctor Who and Bergerac. She has made guest appearances in BBC’s Wild West, CITV’s Out of Sight and ITV’s Midsomer Murders.
