A double-bill of two one-act plays, first performed in London’s West End in 1962, will make their way to Milton Keynes Theatre next week.

This will be the first revival of The Private Ear and The Public Eye, by British playwright Sir Peter Shaffer, in 50 years.

The plays are bittersweet comedies performed as a pair on the same night. They give the audience a window into the changing attitudes to love in the 1960s through a combination of comedy, pathos and drama. This tour will star Jasper Britton as Charles, Steven Blakeley as Bob and Julian, Rupert Hill as Ted, and Siobhan O’Kelly as Doreen and Belinda.

Performances will run from October 7 to 12, at 7.30pm each night. There will also be 2.30pm matinees on the Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets cost £15-£29.50 from 0844 8717652.
