How the Other Half Loves
Presented by: PICT Classic Theatre
Three couples. Two houses. One stage. Like PICT’s 2012 production of House and Garden, How the Other Half Loves is a classic farce by Alan Ayckbourn, the genius of English theatre. With all the complexities and confusions that every great comedy offers, we have a mixture of saints and sinners in a series of nefarious relationships. Experience humor at its finest as two dinner parties on different nights occur simultaneously, while all along the audience knows the secret that is causing the commotion.
