Alan Ayckbourn’s Comic Potential is a comedy set in the foreseeable future where everything has changed except human nature!
A once-famous film director is reduced to churning out daytime medical soap operas performed by android actors. Things start to go awry when one, JC31333, finds herself developing a sense of humour. When Adam, a young scriptwriter, falls for her she starts to develop ‘feelings’ as well – the result is a mixture of farce and feeling – of custard pies and real emotion. Following their triumph with Ayckbourn’s House & Garden TTC present another top notch comedy from Britain’s most popular living playwright. Ayckbourn’s world of robots is a virtual comic delicacy Evening Standard
