Mixed Doubles

by Alan Ayckbourn, John Bowen and Lyndon Brook

“Mixed Doubles” is comprised of dramatic sketches, each portraying marriage at a different stage of life, and are linked together by a series of anti-authoritarian monologues written by George Melly, and Kath Buckley.

Taken together, the performances present an acidly humorous image of marriage from the moment of blessing until the silver wedding anniversary. In the course of the production, many people appear on stage in various professional capacities. The characters in “Mixed Doubles” appear to be plagued by everyday trivialities, their pasts, their jobs, and their marital problems.

Join BWP

Amateur Dramatics is (arguably) the most sincere “team” activity there is, where the cast and crew are all pulling together to give the best production we can, and having a great time doing it – all because we love theatre. We are always welcoming new members, whether on stage or doing the many “backstage” activities needed to stage a show.


Tickets for our plays can be purchased online or on the door. We recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. Season tickets can only be purchased by contacting us.
