Life and Beth


Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Ian McBride

The play was first performed in 2008. It was the first play to be written by Alan Ayckbourn after his stroke in 2006. Recently widowed Beth is hosting her first family Christmas since her husband's death. But a visit and prayer from the local vicar brings an unwelcome and unexpected Christmas visitor to the house.
