Dramatists take on Ayckbourn classic in time travel comedy
West Haddon Players are putting on Communicating Doors, a time-travelling comedy thriller by Alan Ayckbourn later this month.
The action starts in a London hotel suite in the future, where Poopay – a 21st Century specialist sexual consultant, finds herself drawn into a deadly story of murder and dodgy dealings.
However the action is spread over 40 years and Poopay has an incredible chance to save not only her own life but the lives of other innocent people too.
The hotel suite moves through time from 1974 to 2014.
The play’s director said: “It is a play I’ve liked ever since seeing the original production with Julia McKenzie.

“It’s great fun and, unlike many Ayckbourn plays, ends up being very uplifting.
“Good can sometimes prevail after all.”
Communicating Doors will be performed at West Haddon Village Hall from Thursday, May 14 to Saturday, May 16.
The show starts at 7.30pm each night. Tickets are £8 for adults and £6 for concessions.
