Woman in Mind
By Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by Jackson Gay
Thompson Theater
Described as the “comic poet of middle class life,” Ayckbourn creates a black comedy of domestic madness. Susan’s life is far from perfect: a loveless marriage, a distant son and a miserable sister-in-law.  Everything changes one day after an accident in the garden.  Suddenly, she has a family that is charming and delightful, with days full of champagne breakfasts and jolly tennis matches. This life is everything she has ever wanted, but is any of this real? Is it a perfect dream or a perfect nightmare?​

“...a beautiful production in so many ways.” Check out the full review of Woman in Mind by Broad Street Review HERE​.

Woman in Mind runs approximately two hours and thirty minutes, including one fifteen minute intermission.
Theatrical haze, lightning effects, and sounds of thunder and gunshots are used in this production.
