A COMEDY featuring the lives of four couples in three bedrooms has a month-long run at a theatre in the south.

Alan Ayckbourn’s popular play Bedroom Farce is on at Salisbury Playhouse from Thursday, September 4 to Saturday, October 4.

Graham Seed, best known for playing Nigel Pargetter in The Archers, will play Ernest with Penelope Beaumont, who recently appeared in Mark Rylance’s production of Much Ado About Nothing at The Old Vic, playing his wife, Delia. 

Shining a light on the trials and tribulations of 1970s marriage Bedroom Farce takes place as the couples prepare for a night out, with each couple interrupted by the overbearing Susannah and Trevor and their relationship problems.
