Wiltshire Creative has released full casting details for its production of Alan Ayckbourn’s How the Other Half Loves.
Three couples. Two dining rooms. One big mess. The lives of three couples frantically intertwine in this classic Ayckbourn comedy of confusion and chaos.
When one of the women arrives home suspiciously late one night, a chain of events unfolds drawing each of the couples ever deeper into hilarious misunderstanding.
Gareth Machin, Wiltshire Creative’s artistic director, directs Sam Alexander (William Featherstone), Sherry Baines (Fiona Foster), Philip Bretherton (Frank Foster), and Rebecca Cooper (Mary Featherstone), Haydn Oakley (Bob Phillips), and Joanna van Kampen (Teresa Phillips).
The production opens on 14 February, with previews from 9 February. The play runs until 4 March.
Many of the actors are making a return to Salisbury Playhouse. Rebecca Cooper featured in Snow White and the Happy Ever After Beauty Salon, and Her Naked Skin. Haydn Oakley was in Betty Blue Eyes, Philip Bretheron and Sherry Baines were both in Before The Party, and Joanna van Kampen featured in The Magna Carta Plays. Sam Alexander (pictured above) will make his playhouse debut.
Gareth Machin said: “I am thrilled to announce the brilliant cast for How the Other Half Loves.
“I can’t wait to watch these six talented actors bring Ayckbourn’s comedy to life as they explore the complex narratives of matrimonial relationships.”
