Relatively Speaking by Alan Ayckbourn, brought to you by The Madras Players and Chennai Art Theatre, is a play with quick witted dialogue, about two couples in a tangled web of misunderstandings!
Directed by Tehzeeb Katari, the play is a heady mix of confusion. Till the final scene, at least three, of the cast of four, do not appear to have a clear idea of the exact relationships of the others. The misunderstandings are stretched to the absolute limit – and the reappearance of a pair of slippers in the closing moments leaves even the audience guessing.
