"Relatively Speaking" photographs
Weathervane Playhouse in Akron, Ohio, presents “Relatively Speaking” — live on stage from Oct. 9 to 26, 2014

Written by Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Eileen Moushey

ABOUT THE PLAY

In this British comedy set during the "swinging sixties," a complicated series of mistaken identities unravels for a young couple planning to get married.

When the play starts, we meet a young “co-habiting couple,” Greg and Ginny, whose relationship, after only a month, is dwindling into a state of irritability. The naive Greg is hurt and perplexed not only by the unsolicited gifts arriving hourly at their apartment but by Ginny's decision to take off alone one Sunday — supposedly to see her parents in the country.

In reality, Ginny is going to descend on the home of her married boss, Philip, to put an end to their affair. When Greg impulsively follows Ginny, the way is open to a dizzying series of misunderstandings: Greg assumes he is meeting his girlfriend's parents while Philip initially takes Greg to be the lover about whom his own wife, Sheila, has ostentatiously fantasized.

From there, it’s mix-ups and mayhem all around!
