Here's a description of the production:


"Absurd Person Singular"

March 6–23 (preview March 5)

By Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by John P. Kelly

 

Absurd Person Singular is a comedy drama written by the UK's most successful writer of comedy of the late 20th century.

"Following the fortunes of three wildly incompatible couples over three consecutive Christmases, Ayckbourn based his drama on the observation that you can discern much about a person from the fit of their kitchen. Hence we have the Hopcrofts (spotless Formica and sparkling white goods); the Jacksons (knotted pine, filthy oven) and the Brewster-Wrights (temperamental Aga and malfunctioning Victorian boiler). The play's satire of the early 1970s get-rich-quick culture remains prescient, even grimly prophetic: the staggeringly unscrupulous Sidney Hopcroft is an uppity property developer with a taste for manipulative party games who literally has the rest of the characters dancing to his tune.": http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/2012/jul/11/absurd-person-singular-review
