Book
In this third volume of his collected plays, Alan Ayckbourn takes his signature acerbic wit into the territory of the lonely and isolated, focusing on everyone from the fantastically famous to the lowliest of Eleanor Rigbys. Collected here are Haunting Julia, Sugar Daddies, Drowning on Dry Land, and the universally acclaimed Private Fears in Public Places, described by Newsday’s Linda Winer as "an exquisitely modulated chamber sextet about the unpredictable depths and overlapping absurdities of middleage melancholy."

Praise for Alan Ayckbourn: Plays 3

Praise for Private Fears in Public Places:

"Rueful, funny, touching and altogether wonderful . . . [Private Fears is] a collective portrait of contemporary urban isolation that feels uncommonly wise and tender and true." —Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"Subtle in both its effect and impact, [Private Fears] nonetheless succeeds in deeply touching the heart." —Frank Scheck, New York Post

"Unexpectedly affecting . . . The play’s insights into the solitude behind ordinary existence are universal." —David Rooney, Variety
