Penned by our 20th-century Shakespeare, Alan Ayckbourn, in the early ’eighties, Woman in Mind is one of his blacker comedies. Susan’s husband and son leave a lot to be desired in their relationships with her and she finds it difficult to cope. She retreats into an ideal dream family but soon the real and imaginary become intertwined and fantasy and reality morph into a nightmare scenario.
Woman in Mind will be presented by Bournemouth Little Theatre Club at the Little Theatre, Jameson Road, from 11 to 16 December at 7.45. For tickets call 01202 513361.
