If you didn't see House-Garden the first time, then I would say, do have a look. It isn't a classic but it does contain one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen and some other pretty funny ones too.

If you like your Alan Ayckbourn (and there's a lot about at the moment) then you may be interested to know that House and Garden, his acclaimed duet of plays performed simultaneously in two auditoria with a single cast moving between the two plays, is being performed at the Bridewell Theatre / Bridewell Hall from 24 October-4 August.

I can only make it to one of the two - which has the funniest scenes?

O dear can't remember. I think the one I'm thinking of is the Garden. But others may remember better.

I just wish I could squeeze in both and get the full benefit.  But I'm quite happy to take a gamble on Garden!

I reckon Graden is your more typical laugh out loud comedy, whereas House is full of darker humour and is better constructed. So, kind of depends what you want!

If you see both, personally, I think you see Garden first.
