A comedy in four parts about an unremarkable man and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him over sixty years; and of the equally remarkable old manor house that saw and heard it all happen.

From his first unsettling encounter as a very young man in 1925 to an unexpected reunion late in life, Anthony Spates's romantic progress is charted in this hilarious and gently touching comedy. The fireworks, love, and loss come at the funniest moments in this brand new classic Ayckbourn comedy.

★★★★ “The play charts with delicacy, verve, and wit the life of an ordinary man across 60 years” – The Stage, London

★★★★ “Tear-inducingly tender” – The Times

“Ingenious, mischievous… bravura performances” – The Reviews Hub
