Britain’s brilliant comic genius, Sir Alan Ayckbourn penned a fast-paced and hilariously funny theatrical meal. It stands as a classic modern comedy. A portrait of three very different marriages that turns into a spirited game of mixed doubles involving sex, jealousy and ingenious stagecraft that only Mr. Ayckbourn can design. Full of clever, razor-sharp dialogue and impeccable split-second timing and twists, HOW THE OTHER HALF LOVES promises to leave you in stitches.

If you are looking for a fun-filled evening out and enjoy seeing hilarious live theatre you will want to take in the current production at the North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, “How the Other Half Loves” by Alan Ayckbourn. The play is built around quick one-liners, back and forth dialog, a very unique set design and one of the most fascinating dinner scenes presented on stage. How the Other Half Loves” is enthusiastically performed by an extraordinary cast who does not miss a beat.
