Beautifully crafted, uproariously funny and charmingly English, Relatively Speaking was Alan Ayckbourn's first West End hit in Protected content . It made him a household name, with critics hailing the arrival of a great new comic talent and Noël Coward himself praising the young writer on creating “a beautifully constructed and very funny comedy”.

Greg only met Ginny a month ago but has already made up his mind that she's the girl for him. When she tells him that she's going to visit her parents, he decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter's hand in marriage. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden. The only thing is, they're not Ginny's parents…

A brilliant comedy built on the perfect mechanism of misunderstanding, which overwhelms the 2 pairs of characters in an unstoppable and hilarious chain of mistaking people and twists and turns. An irresistible and scathing humor that stages the vices and virtues of the English bourgeoisie.
