A classic comedy return to the SJT

Alan Ayckbourn’s classic comedy Henceforward returns to the Stephen Joseph Theatre this autumn in a brand new production directed by the author.

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.
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 year’s Scarborough revival follows a hugely successful production last year 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 production runs from Thursday 8 September to Saturday 8 October 2016
