The piece starts with a brief prologue on Albert Bridge, SW3 at midnight. Two strangers meet there. Henry, a 42 year old executive, divorced and recently made redundant, and Karen, 25 rich, beautiful, upper class and decidedly eccentric. Both are apparently trying to jump off the bridge and end it all. (Karen has been crossed in love).

As a result of their meeting, they drive to Karen's huge mid Victorian country home in Dorset where they strike a bargain whereby each agrees to exact revenge on behalf of the other.

"This one will be a bit of an epic," said Alan Ayckbourn when The Revengers' Comedies was announced in the Scarborough Evening News. It was an understatement.

In 1989, Alan Ayckbourn decided to celebrate his 50th birthday by writing an ambitious two-part play, The Revengers' Comedies, an epic piece set over five hours with more than 20 characters, played by 14 actors.

The plays were inspired by Alan's great love of the cinema as a young man and it references many notable movies, the most obvious being Strangers On A Train. The filmic influence was carried through to the actual production as Alan envisioned a fast-moving play set in London and the countryside. Scenes are often short and move rapidly from one place to the next, offering a tremendous technical challenge.

Perhaps the audience had also changed. It was obvious Alan had moved away from the suburban house-bound comedies which had propelled him to fame. His plays were now altogether different and darker. Yet though the Scarborough audiences embraced Alan's development, there is a sense that London audiences still wanted Ayckbourn the farceur to return. Of course, this was never going to happen.
