A Brief History of Women archive"One way or another you've had quite a full life haven't you? A house full of ghosts then? No wonder you look slightly haunted. Like a character out of Edgar Allen Poe. Beware!" A comedy in four parts about an unremarkable man and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him over 60 years; and of the equally remarkable old manor house that saw and heard it all happen. From his first unsettling encounter as a very young man in 1925 to an unexpected reunion late in life, Anthony Spates' romantic progress is charted in this hilarious and gently touching comedy. The fireworks, the love and loss come at the funniest moments in this brand new classic Ayckbourn comedy. World Premiere.
