Absurd Person Singular

Wine tasting water mark

Written by Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Andrew Thomson

Alan Ayckbourn’s “Absurd Person Singular” is set on three successive Christmas Eves, and by identifying them in the script as “Last Christmas,” “This Christmas,” and “Next Christmas,” the playwright conjures the three spirits that visit Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol.” What he depicts, however, is not the implausible redemption of a miser but the inexorable rise of a money-grubbing British middle class.
