ALAN Ayckbourn’s play Absent Friends will be performed at The Playhouse in Weston-super-Mare.

Ayckbourn is a prolific English playwright who has created more than 70 full-length shows.

In Absent Friends, Diana arranges a gathering to cheer up recently-bereaved Colin. But tensions are at breaking point before Colin even arrives.

The play explores friendship, marriage and the meaning of happiness.

Absent Friends was Ayckbourn’s 16th full-length play, performed in London’s West End for the first time in 1975.

This latest interpretation will be at The Playhouse on November 19-21 at 7.30pm. There will also be a matinee show at 2.30pm on November 21.

Tickets, priced £16-18, are available from the box office by calling 01934 645544 or online at
* The Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer three pairs of tickets to the show.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final. By entering the competition you agree to be contacted by Archant.
