Ten Times Table

Main House, Theatre Royal


Back to Events


What could be a more entertaining start to the festive season than one of comedy master Alan Ayckbourn’s most hilarious plays?

Set in the once grand ballroom of The Swan Hotel, Ten Times Table follows the increasingly raucous attempts of a village committee to organise the first Pendon Folk Festival. The opening of the festival, as envisaged by chairman Ray, will be a supposedly uplifting pageant based on an incongruous piece of local history, The Massacre of the Pendon Twelve.

As the disparate committee members who include Ray’s wife, Helen, a Marxist school teacher, a military dog breeder and an octogenarian secretary, break into two factions, their wrangling culminates in a scenario that mirrors the original event all too closely.

Anybody who has ever sat in a meeting will recognise the thrust and parry of rivals jostling for position over tea and biscuits in this extremely funny comedy.
