You may think you have had some disastrous dinner parties but they are sure to pale in comparison to those in How The Other Half Loves.

The play was a smash hit on London’s West End and now it is heading to Bath’s Theatre Royal.

Audiences have fallen in love with the clumsy cover-ups and matrimonial mishaps of Bob and Fiona, as they try to hide their affair.

But when their spouses intervene, the story only gets more confusing – as William and Mary Featherstone become hopelessly stuck in the middle as they are falsely accused of adultery.

The plot culminates in two dinners on successive nights, shown at the same time, which puts the future of all the couples in jeopardy.
