Sir Alan Ayckbourn supports return of Rep to Leatherhead stage

Sir Alan Ayckbourn has encouraged Leatherhead Rep’s efforts to restore the rep system to the UK theatre industry. He remembers this unique way of working with amusement. “Those were the times when practically everyone working in the building, given the challenge of an occasional larger-cast production, got in on the act. ‘Very difficult to concentrate’ sniffed one ‘proper’ actor, ‘when during my big speech, one of them’s checking the lights and the other’s counting the bloody house!’”

Communicating Doors is set in a near-dystopian future and tells the story of a dominatrix fleeing for her life through a hotel communicating door, only to find herself 20 years in the past. Stalked by a psychopath in the present and the past, the opportunity to alter time for the better puts the lives of three women at stake.

The play will run at the Leatherhead Theatre from Tuesday 1st May to Saturday 5th May 2018, closing the season that begins on 17th April with Yes, Prime Minister followed by The Secret Garden. Tickets are available from the Leatherhead Theatre box office, by phone 01372 365141, or via the website www.theleatherheadtheatre.com
