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
Sadly, due the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID19 Lockdown, the second half of this warm and poignant comedy’s season has had to be cancelled. Refunds have been made to all those who had booked tickets for these performances.
