An Evening of Michael Frayn
Audience, is a delightful send-up which holds up a mirror to the outlandish behaviour and comedy inherent in every theatre audience.
More plays than One is a miscellany of plays which examine the difficulties modern technology has added to life – with, hilarious results. In Alarms, two couples embark on a dinner party which is doomed to failure as, one by one, labour-saving devices and even furniture become hostile. In Leavings, the dinner-party is amusingly revisited. In Look Away Now, passengers ignore their airliner’s safety lecture. Heart to Heart deals with the impossibility of communication at a noise drinks party and Toasters shows the problems of trying to eat and work standing up at a function.
