Dick & Lottie - the UK's only amateur company dedicated to the playwright Alan Ayckbourn - is taking Woman In Mind & Invisible Friends on a short tour following a sell-out run at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield.
It is the first time that these plays have been performed in repertory, despite the fact the playwright considers them to be plays related in both theme and subject.
The tour is visiting The Coach House Theatre in Malvern and South Hill Park in Bracknell, both of which Dick & Lottie have toured to in previous years.
The award-winning play Woman In Mind premiered in 1984 and follows Susan, the wife of a vicar who creates a vivid fantasy life to cope with the mundanity of her marriage. But what happens when fantasy and reality collide?
Invisible Friends, which ran at the National Theatre in 1991, sees young Lucy coping with her family by inventing a invisible friend. But when Zara becomes all too real and offers to make Lucy's family vanish, Lucy has to deal with the consequences and how to get her family back.
Dick & Lottie was formed in 2004 and has produced more than 25 of Alan Ayckbourn's plays since then. The company has been officially recognised by Alan Ayckbourn - even performing for the playwright in 2015 - and the playwright's official website www.alanayckbourn.net is the company's patron.
