Things are hotting up as the next production for Breakaway Theatre Company is set to be a sizzling sensation! The outdoor show has a spicy mix of love, laughter, and tears – served with romance, scandal and lust!

Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious comedy, A Brief History Of Women, is about Anthony Spates, an unremarkable man, and the remarkable women who loved him, left him, or lost him. The play runs from Thursday 4 August to Saturday 6 August at the beautiful setting of the Inn on the Park in Verulamium Park, St Albans.

Spanning 60 years in four parts, the show shows how Spates ages from 17 to 77, changing jobs and changing relationships – and as the setting changes with Kirkbridge Manor becoming a school, an arts centre and a hotel.
