The hilarious words of the renowned playwright Alan Ayckbourn return to Cambridge Arts Theatre from February 22 to 25, in the classic comedy Henceforward…

Sometime, in the not-too-distant future, Jerome struggles vainly to complete his life’s masterwork about love.

With the help of a deranged android childminder, Jerome hatches a cunning plan to retrieve his source of artistic inspiration, his beloved daughter Geain, from her mother, his hostile estranged ex-wife.

But the best laid plans of men and mechanical women…

Alan Ayckbourn has written over 70 plays, and was Artistic Director of the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough from 1972 – 2009. Over 40 of his plays have been produced in the West End since his first hit Relatively Speaking opened in 1969.

Henceforward… was first produced in Scarborough in 1987, and subsequently at the Vaudevillex Theatre, London in 1988, starring Ian McKellen and Jane Asher, where it won the Evening Standard Best Comedy award.
