Have your say

Set in the autumn of 1969, three couples live through two houses, with overlapping living rooms.

The scene may sound unusual, but Alan Ayckbourns play, How The Other Half Loves, confronts the everyday intertwining of couples relationships.

The Pheonix Players will be performing the play at St Peter’s Theatre, on Fraser Road, Southsea, from September 21 – 24.

Established in 1953, the amateur group puts on four performances a year, with past productions including The Hound Of The Baskervilles, Cinderella, and The Importance Of Being Ernest.

Tickets cost £3.50 to £7 from St Peter’s Theatre, Southsea, on 0845 293 9350 or visit
