Bedroom Farce is a fantastically funny Ayckbourn comedy, full of shockingly believable characters behaving in a plausibly ridiculous fashion. I recently played Malcolm Newton in an amateur production of the show, and thoroughly enjoyed showing the character's chirpy easy-going facade gradually disintegrate to reveal the furious manchild within, storming out of the house, and venting black rage on to a hapless MFI flatpack.

A bedroom farce or sex farce is a type of light comedy, which centres on the sexual pairings and recombinations of characters as they move through improbable plots and slamming doors. The bedroom farce is perhaps the most common form of farce. The most famous bedroom farceur is probably Georges Feydeau, whose collections of coincidences, slamming doors, and ridiculous dialogue delighted Paris in the 1890s and are now considered forerunners to the Theatre of the Absurd.

Alan Ayckbourn, in Bedroom Farce, has written another in his series of very funny and insightful farces. This one is staged using three sets that appear together: three bedrooms, which allow the action of the interrelated couples to indulge in the farce of the title.

Alan Ayckbourn's Bedroom Farce makes a welcome return to the New York stage, looking quite agile after a 30-year absence. A strangely underperformed playwright in the United States, Ayckbourn is ubiquitous in the British theatre. He's written more than 70 comedies - most examine the foibles of the English middle class - and had a staggering 41 West End productions. Such facility and industriousness inevitably raise suspicions of hackdom, but for all of Ayckbourn's slickness, it's difficult to resist his elegantly constructed plots and ingenious use of theatrical space.

Trevor and Susannah, whose marraige is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest: three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. Taking place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples' bedrooms during one endless Saturday night of co-dependence and dysfunction, beds, tempers, and domestic order are ruffled, leading all the players to a hilariously touching epiphany.
