A Severed Head dress rehearsal

This afternoon A Severed Head had their dress rehearsal in Corpus Playroom.

Martin wants it all. A happy marriage to Antonia and a delightful affair with the much younger Georgie. Yet his comfortable existence is upset when his wife reveals she has been sleeping with her psychoanalyst Palmer, and wants a divorce. Lovers are swapped around shamelessly as a brilliantly funny story, which is mostly satirical, at times bordering on farcical, ensues.

Set in the homes of the middle class in 1960’s London, the adaptation by Iris Murdoch and JB Priestley is a witty, sharp and intelligent exploration of marriage, adultery and class.
