Written & Directed by Alan Ayckbourn
with Stephen Billington, Elizabeth Boag, Russell Dixon, Charlotte Harwood, Evelyn Hoskins, and Richard Stacey
A decorated war hero returns to his boyhood stomping ground with a new young bride, but is all as it seems?
Once the welcome flags have stopped waving, few of his friends seem particularly happy to see him back. Murray's declared intention of staying put and settling down threatens to stir up all sorts of old rivalries and resentments. Suddenly the couple, in search of peace, find themselves once more in the firing line.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre is a cultural icon of the Yorkshire region, providing accessible, high quality theatre for audiences worldwide for over 60 years. It was the first professional theatre-in-the-round in the UK. Widely known for its world premieres of almost all of Alan Ayckbourn’s 79 plays and its commitment to new writing. It has toured plays to more than forty five national and international venues.
The SJT’s home is in a wonderful art deco building in the heart of Scarborough on North Yorkshire’s coast. This summer the company will produce an extraordinary repertoire of five plays in its two auditoria with additional lunchtime plays, play readings, talks and special events many of which can be seen in one week or even in one weekend.
