FRIDAY 3rd APRIL

7.30PM

A hilarious and thoroughly uplifting new play about

relationships, which has all the ingredients of a great

comedy… clown, bouffon, vaudeville and slapstick! With

a sprinkle of drama and a splash of tragedy, this cake…

I mean pizza, is ready to eat.

The Affair is a wonderfully funny play… a laugh a

minute, simply, unmissable!

Our casanova, Gustavo, is getting ready to ask a very

important question, but not before he has checked

everything on his ‘to do’ list. After Daffadowndilly’s arrival,

what is supposed to be a romantic evening soon starts

to spiral out of control; following a knock on the door all

reason turns to mayhem, and we are faced with a scenario

that leaves all three characters grappling for sanity.

The Affair is a timeless comedy that depicts the highs

and lows of relationships in a very funny way.

With each character bringing a different light to the

story, there is plenty for the audience to relate to and

be amused by.
