"People do think that Ayckbourn plays can be slightly comfortable but there is always a darker edge to them. I love the fact that the audience starts laughing and then they stop when they realise that they are laughing at a person who is having a terrible time for some reason. He does that so beautifully. You're laughing and then the laugh catches in your throat."
