Review

Synopsis:  Confusions is a set of five interlinked one−act plays. Each play deals riotously, but with sharply pointed undertones, with human eccentricities and the human dilemma of loneliness: a mother unable to escape from baby talk (Mother Talk), a disastrous fete (Gosforth's Fete), an unsuccessful seduction attempt (Drinking Companion), a fate−fraught dinner encounter (Between Mouthfuls), and the final play (A Talk in the Park) sums up, with five self−immolated characters on park benches.

Author:  Alan Ayckbourn
Director:  Helen Lammas
