| farce masterpiece
Another wonderful play, televised in 1989 and now lost, with no VHS tape or DVD available. Mistaken identity lies at the core of the farce, as the boyfriend travels out of London to meet his girlfriend's parents for the first time. Only they aren't her parents, for he picked up the wrong address and landed at the home of his girlfriend's old flame. The trio - young man, old flame, and the old flame's dotty wife - talk at cross-purposes, extending the mistaken identities to the point of hilarity. This is Ayckbourn at his best, helped greatly by a top-drawer cast, headed by Nigel Hawthorne. It was broadcast on PBS as a Great Performances special and then, tragically, disappeared forever, along with a number of other fine British plays. Someone at PBS should smarten up; instead of mindless "pledge breaks," the network could coin money by selling DVDs of these treasures.
