    Private Fears in Public Places

    Alan Ayckbourn’s PRIVATE FEARS IN PUBLIC PLACES seamlessly moves among the interconnected lives of six Londoners as they search for connections in a congested, cosmopolitan city of seven million.

    Alan Ayckbourn’s PRIVATE FEARS IN PUBLIC PLACES seamlessly moves among the interconnected lives of six Londoners as they search for connections in a congested, cosmopolitan city of seven million. The story moves briskly between apartment-hunting, solitary boozing, dating agency disappointments, VCR porn viewing, and a sour, bedridden patient getting more than he expects from a care-giver. Featuring 54 scenes – some of them wordless - in 100 minutes without an intermission, Private Fears is not a typical Ayckbourn comedy. The playwright’s best known works here in the US frequently feature heightened comic situations and farcical elements. Private Fears is a subtler piece resonating with both humor and humanity.

      Great performance by the believable drunk guy. Some funny lines. The story was a bit uneven, especially the connection with the bartender. I couldn't quite understand his role in the play. But... Expand
