When We Are Married by J.B. Priestly
Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th September 1969
St Augustine’s Hall, Trowbridge
Set in turn-of-the-century Yorkshire, the story concerns three middle-aged married couples, who tend to look askance towards anyone who does not come up to their high moral and religious standards. These pecksniffs are especially critical towards those who advocate a break from the repressive sexual taboos of the era. Imagine their dismay, then, when all three couples discover that they’re not legally married. Their efforts to hide this fact, and their eventual comeuppance, provides several hearty laughs.
