Three couples, an indiscretion, a cover-up, accusations, and crumbling alibis on overlapping sets lead to confusion and comedy in the Hampton Theatre Company’s revival of Alan Ayckbourn’s “How the Other Half Loves,” opening today for a three-week run at Quogue Community Hall.
The production of “How the Other Half Loves” features the living rooms of two of the three couples overlapping on the same set and sharing a common dining table. The shared table allowed the playwright to have two different, disastrous dinner parties on two different evenings play out simultaneously in the same scene.
Diana Marbury, HTC’s artistic director who played the role of Fiona Foster in the 1992 production, directs a cast of six, made up of three HTC regulars and three newcomers to the company.
Showtimes are Thursdays at 7 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets cost $25, $23 for those 65 or over, and $10 for students under 21 and are available at hamptontheatre.org or by calling OvationTix. The company will offer dinner theater packages in collaboration with the Southampton, Westhampton Beach, Hampton Bays, and Quogue libraries
