by Alan Ayckbourn

Written by one of Britain’s most popular playwrights, Confusions is a witty and poignant glimpse into relationships and loneliness, consisting of four interconnected one-act plays.Mother Figure is the heroine, who decides that if adults behave like children then that is how they should be treated. Between Mouthfuls is a surreal view of quarrelling couples in a restaurant.Gosforth’s Fete is the village gala where everything that can go wrong does. Finally, four strangers on separate park benches, each with their own troubles, have A Talk in the Park.
