When Gerry Stratton plans a family meal at their favourite local restaurant to celebrate his wife Laura’s 54th birthday and proposes a toast to ‘happy times’, he has no idea of the events that will unfold.
Family skeletons intrude on cheerful domesticity as we get a glimpse into lives and the future events that will unfold for Gerry & Laura, their two sons Glyn and Adam and their partners.
Time of My Life springs several surprises as Ayckbourn cleverly mixes both tragedy and comedy in a play that both entertains and inspires.
"A play by an inspired master craftsman and cunning psychologist working at full stretch: harsh and funny, simple and cunning, generous but unforgiving." - London Sunday Times
"Funny, very funny, and not at all funny; quintessentially Ayckbourn." - London Times
"Immensely subtle, ingenious." - Guardian
