TUDOR Players are presenting No 65 in the Alan Ayckbourn canon, Improbable Fiction, written in 2005 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough. It’s a light-hearted romp which introduces us to a local writer’s circle.

It is very much a play of two halves with the first introducing the members of the Pendon Writers’ Circle and their literary ambitions, their host, Arnold, and a girl called Ilsa who brings everyone a cup of tea.

The second half provides a theatrical transformation of the magnitude only Ayckbourn can come up with as the story ideas presented by the group earlier come to life in front of a baffled Arnold. Three stories from different genres and periods - historical romance, Thirties detective story and a sci-fi conspiracy – unfold.

“This play is intended to be fun,” the playwright said at the time. Not an improbable ambition.

Improbable Fiction is at the Library Theatre until Saturday. Tickets: 2853450 or email tickets@tudorplayers.net
