Getting On at Ilkley Playhouse
Play, Wed 19 - Sat 29 Apr 2017, £9-£11
Also at this Venue
Getting On is one of Alan Bennett's earliest plays. Produced in 1971, when the action takes place, the writing is sharp, perceptive, analytical and funny - in other words, quintessentially Bennett.
It won the Evening Standard award for Best Comedy that year. While we laugh, his characters are exploring our British obsessions, prejudices and institutions.
George Oliver is the central character, a middle-aged Labour MP with a younger wife and family.
George may be getting on in his career but isn't getting on so well with family, friends and the neighbours who surround him.
Director: Jacquie Howard
