Alan Ayckbourn’s Woman In Mind comes to York Theatre Royal

After the success of The Seagull in 2020, York Settlement Community Players return to York Theatre Royal’s Studio with one of Ayckbourn’s most moving and funny plays. Blending humour and pathos, Woman in Mind paints the portrait of a woman on the verge.

Housewife Susan is stuck. Unfulfilled and neglected in her humdrum marriage, her growing disillusionment with everyday life is brought to a head when she steps on a garden rake and is knocked unconscious.

All it takes is a minor concussion – and a few hilarious hallucinations – for Susan to find herself suddenly surrounded by the ideal fantasy family, handsomely dressed in tennis whites and sipping champagne. But when her real and imaginary worlds collide, those fantasies take on a nightmarish life of their own.

Woman In Mind will be performed at York Theatre Royal from 19 to 26 February 2022. Tickets are £13 (£10 concessions) and are available at the theatre website or by calling the box office on 01904 623568.
