Donkeys’ Years

by Michael Frayn

directed by Mike Tilbury


Twenty-five years after they graduated, six students – now in responsible and influential positions – gather for a reunion dinner at their old Oxbridge college. Politicians, academics, businessmen and clerics (not to mention a mysterious chap whom no one quite recognises) gather for a dignified celebration of worldly success. But as the night wears on in a frenzy of drunken high jinks and debagging, and the Master’s wife short-sightedly searches for the lost love of her youth, a heady cocktail of alcohol, nostalgia and confusion works its magic – and the pillars of society start to crumble…

Complete mayhem ensues in this riotous, door-slamming, up-market farce by the award-winning writer of Noises Off. The original West End production of Donkeys’ Years won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy of the Year and there have been a number of acclaimed revivals. TTC’s production is a rare chance to see one of the great classics of modern comedy.
