Alan Ayckbourn’s classic comedy Henceforward... is touring to Guildford, Northampton, Windsor and Cambridge in 2017 in a brand new production directed by the author.
All alone, high up in an isolated, derelict suburban tower block, avant garde composer Jerome struggles vainly to complete his life’s masterwork about love.
With the help of a deranged android childminder, he hatches a plan to retrieve his source of artistic inspiration, his beloved daughter Geain, from his hostile and estranged ex-wife.
But the best laid plans of men and mechanical women...
Henceforward... premiered at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in 1987, then at London’s Vaudeville Theatre a year later in a production which won the Evening Standard Best Comedy Award.
This revival follows a hugely successful production at a theatre in Germany. The production at the Deutsches Schauspielhaus in Hamburg opened in February 2015 and was so popular, regularly playing to full houses in the 1200-seat theatre, that the run was extended and the show ended up playing for over a year.
The cast comprises Bill Champion, Andy Cryer, Jessie Hart, Nigel Hastings, Velvet Hebditch, Jacqueline King and Laura Matthews.
The 2017 tour begins at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre (19 - 28 January), followed by the Royal & Derngate, Northampton (6 - 11 February), Theatre Royal Windsor (13 - 18 February), and the Cambridge Arts Theatre (22 - 25 February).
