Way Upstream

By Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Ian Nethersell

“there is nothing – absolutely nothing-half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats”

(The Wind in the Willows. By Kenneth Grahame. 1908. Methuen)

This may be true for water rats but probably not for Alistair & Emma as they embark on a fortnight’s cruise up the river Orb with Keith, Alistair’s domineering business partner, and his wife June. Tides and tempers run high but Keith’s secretary, Mrs Hatfield, always manages to arrive on time with her daily report. When mysterious strangers Vincent and Fleur join the party, things take an unexpected – and slightly sinister – turn.
