About the Play
Henry and Alice, married for longer than they can remember, are slipping into middle age along with their goldfish, Orca. Henry either sits in front of the TV or goes down to the pub, while Alice is left at home with the housework. Communication does not come into it. In other words, life is boring; or is it?
Henry has no idea what goes through Alice’s head and Alice doesn’t know what Henry is thinking. We, the audience, are allowed to find out.
Join them at home, on holiday, and wherever it is their minds go in one of the funniest shows on earth.
About the author
David Tristram (born in 1957) is one of the UK’s most popular and performed comedy playwrights. He studied English and music and became a commercial copywriter before turning to comedy. In 1985 he founded the Flying Ducks Theatre Company, now a professional touring company.
The author claims he writes only comedy because he can’t take himself too seriously. His work has been performed in many countries throughout the world.
Apart from his plays, David Tristram has written a comedy novel entitled A Bolt from the Blue, the musical Sex, Drugs & Rick and Noel and made three films. He is also well-known in Britain for his work in Pantomime (family comedy shows at Christmas).
