About Bedroom Farce
4 couples. 3 bedrooms. One hilarious night. Trevor and Susannah, with their marriage on the rocks, invade 3 bedrooms of their family and friends over the course of an evening, spreading chaos in their wake. Director Maria Aitken (The 39 Steps, Private Lives) returns for this rollicking comedy of marital misunderstandings.
Approximate run time: 2 hours and 5 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.
“I am looking forward enormously to returning to the Huntington, my favorite regional theatre in America – no, amend that – in the world. It's the people who work there, of course. They're not only immensely skilled at what they do, which can't be for the money, they are magnificently supportive of my choices. I know whatever vision my designers and I come up with, it will somehow be realized.”— Maria Aitken
“Having Maria Aitken at the helm of a Huntington show is always a dream. She struck gold with the Olivier and Tony Award-winning The 39 Steps and directed amazing productions of masterworks The Seagull and Private Lives. In my eyes Maria will always have an artistic home here at the Huntington. Also, Maria starred as Susannah in the National Theatre’s premiere of Bedroom Farce, so she knows what she’s talking about. Quick-witted, moving, and entertaining, this production is one to anticipate.”— Peter DuBois
