Surprise, surprise it's another top comedy from Alan Ayckbourn at Theatre Royal Bath
Alan Ayckbourn's brand new play, Surprises, which he also directs, visits the Theatre Royal Bath from Monday.
Following its world premiere at Scarborough's Stephen Joseph Theatre, the original cast of Ayesha Antoine, Bill Champion, Laura Doddington, Sarah Parks, Ben Porter and Richard Stacey reprise their roles in Surprises for the first national tour.
Alan Ayckbourn's thought-provoking, comic drama has its head in the future and its heart in the past.
From parental plots and youthful rebellion to middle-aged marital disillusion, Surprises explores love stories yet to happen in a future filled with surprises.

Spanning 50 years, this tightly plotted, time-travelling production takes a humorous and poignant look at the implications for romance in a world where people live on long beyond current expectations. But can love hold true when it's possible to live for 200 years? And in a world where the future can be visited, is it better not to know what is coming next?
Alan Ayckbourn says: "Surprises is essentially several love stories but love stories that have a spin on them. It's science fiction but used as an allegory – as most good sci-fi is – to reflect what's happening today. It's about longevity. The chances of people living longer and longer as the centuries go by are increasingly plausible and certainly quite interesting dramatically."
