14 LetticeLovage

 

Eccentric Lettice Duffet simply cannot settle for the ordinary. Even working as a tour guide at Fustian House, one of Britain’s more boring stately homes, cannot stop her creativity. Her experiences as the daughter of an actress who toured France with an all-girl troupe performing Shakespeare’s history plays, along with her enthusiasm for Elizabethan food and medieval weaponry, help her to inventively inform her tourists and liven up the house’s dull history. In her passion for the past, though, she begins to stray from fact and increasingly makes her tours more theatrical, much to the horror of dry and dour Lotte Schoen, a representative of the Preservation Trust. She walks in a the height of Lettice’s extravagances, and Lettice suddenly finds herself without a job. But, bit by bit, the purist Lotte finds herself drawn into Lettice’s world of historical romance. The two discover they have more in common than meets the eye, and an unusual friendship grows. This is soon challenged, however, when during their re-enactment of Charles I’s execution a nasty little accident happens...

This witty and passionate comedy by the author of Equus and Amadeus won the Evening Standard’s Best Comedy Award in 1988 and was nominated for the Tony Award in 1990.

Snake in the Grass poster

Miriam has cared for her father in the family home during his last years with the help of the creepily polite nurse, Alice. On Father‘s death, Miriam‘s older sister, attractive, divorced Annabel, returns home after over thirty years abroad to find Daddy has left the bulk of his fortune to her. In the unkempt grounds she is accosted by Alice, who claims that Miriam sacked her to do away with her father and has a letter to prove it. Gentle Miriam and resolute Annabel join forces against Alice, and soon the blackmailer‘s body is hurtling down the well to oblivion. But all does not end there ... Snake in the Grass is a spine-tingling suspense drama about murder and ghosts from the past and present, penned by the inimitable Alan Ayckbourn.
