Felicity Kendal is just one of the stars set to appear in Alan Ayckbourn’s play, Relatively Speaking, when it arrives at Milton Keynes Theatre next week.

The play, which also stars former EastEnders actress Kara Tointon, tells the story of Greg, who has made up his mind that Ginny is the girl for him... despite only having met her a month ago.

When Ginny tells him that she is going to visit her parents, he decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand.

Discovering an 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 are not Ginny’s parents.

TV and stage star Felicity Kendal, still best known for BBC comedy, The Good Life, and, more recently, ITV drama, Rosemary and Thyme, plays Sheila.

When this production eventually transfers to Wyndham’s Theatre in London it will be the first time she has starred in a play by Alan Ayckbourn in the West End since 1974.

The play will run from Monday, May 6 until Saturday, May 11, nightly at 7.30pm.

There will also be 2.30pm matinees on the Wednesday and Saturday.

Tickets cost £15-£33.50. Contact 0844 8717652.
