Comic Potential - at Theatro Technis









"Why do we laugh? Why do we love? Why do all lonely-hearts ads demand a Good Sense Of Humour?

"In the near future, an android develops emotions and an aspiring writer falls in love with her. But where he sees potential, others see malfunction.

"Winner of Olivier, Evening Standard and London Critics' Circle awards, [Alan Ayckbourn's] Comic Potential is an hilarious and moving story by the master of theatrical comedy. Set in the future where everything is different except human nature, the play is a satire on television, a discourse on comedy and a story dealing with the nature of love.

" ' of the funniest plays of the year...' - The Observer

" ' astute, big-hearted play that even as it makes us laugh, asks us why we do.' - Financial Times

" ' of Ayckbourn’s sharpest and most topical satires. He has gone back to the future to show us the way we live now." '- Daily Telegraph

" 'As with all Ayckbourn’s best plays, you are watching a comedy-farce, and suddenly find that tragedy comes out of the wood-work and grins at you.' - Sunday Times" - from the Tower Theatre website

Please purchase your own ticket on the Tower Theatre website. Note that tickets are £2 cheaper if bought in advance online.

There will be drinks before the play at the Lyttelton Arms, from 6.30, for anyone who would like to join us.

    I'll try to print out some kind of signage as well, just in case, and put it on one of the tables. Food is good at the pub if you want to eat beforehand!
