Torbay Theatre presents Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy Life and Beth’
It’s Christmas, and Beth Timms is mourning the recent death of her health and safety officer husband, Gordon. Beth’s sister-in-law Connie and son Martin have come to stay, determined to ensure that she should have a stress-free Christmas, but between Connie’s drinking problem and Martin’s unspeaking and emotionally volatile girlfriend Ella, their intentions prove to be short-lived. Only David, the local vicar, provides Beth with any comfort, though he has trouble remembering her late husband’s name.
Performing 12th – 15th and 18th – 21st Aug 2021
Gate Theatre, Torbay Community Hall
