The Questors Theatre Tuesday 18 December - Saturday 5 January

Absent Friends

A 1975 period piece of masterful dark comedy by Alan Ayckbourn, Absent Friends is a bittersweet, hysterical look at love, friendship and the realisation of middle age.

Colin’s fiancée has recently passed away. His estranged friends never met her, but a gathering has been organised to cheer him up. Some aren’t too enthusiastic about the reunion, however…

The old gang try their best to console their pal through his grief, but there is huge tension in the air. Dodgy deals, extramarital affairs, trivial illness and a paper towel holder all hinder the group as the cracks in their friendships begin to appear. In fact, it’s poor Colin who is the happiest of the lot!

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm; Saturday 5 January at 2.30pm.

No performances on 25, 26, 27 December and 1 January
