Throw in three dysfunctional couples and mix them together with two wild dinner parties, one enormous lie, witty dialogue and clever staging and you have the perfect recipe for a funny evening.

The Alan Ayckbourn drawing-room comedy was first performed on stage in 1969 and follows the story of two people trying to cover up their affair.

As a result they lie to their spouses about where they were on a particular evening.

They unknowingly bring others into their lies and this is when all the trouble begins.

Director Dave Went said audiences would enjoy the wit and humour of a British comedy.

“Alan Ayckbourn is very funny and clever,” Went said.

“[This play] is cleverly written and very entertaining.”

How the Other Half Loves has an unique setup and includes two houses set simultaneously on the same stage.

Went has directed and starred in over 60 productions and he said How the Other Half Loves was the most difficult play to perfect.

“The technical demands of this piece mean that the cast, crew and I have been kept hopping every step of the rehearsal period,” he said.

“But we’ve also enjoyed ourselves enormously, and we’re confident the audience will have a great time, too.”

Laughable lies: Leigh Scanlon as Teresa and Larry Murphy as Bob in How the Other Half Loves at the Pavilion Theatre.
