About A Brief History of Women

A comedy in four parts about an unremarkable man and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him over sixty years; and of the equally remarkable old manor house that saw and heard it all happen. From his first unsettling encounter as a very young man in 1925 to an unexpected reunion late in life, Anthony Spates' romantic progress is charted in this hilarious and gently touching comedy. The fireworks, love, and loss come at the funniest moments in this brand new classic Ayckbourn comedy.

Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn

With Russell Dixon, Antony Eden, Frances Marshall, Laura Matthews, Laurence Pears, and Louise Shuttleworth
