Ground Rules

Judith and Gerald look the perfect couple – he’s a successful businessman, she’s an aspiring counsellor, they live in a stylish suburban home and it seems nothing can spoil their happy marriage… that is until Jo and Ashley arrive on the scene!

Rescuing Jo from a very public argument with her boyfriend, Judith and Gerald take her home… but when Ashley follows them, it sets off a chain of events that no-one can control. Flirting and frayed tempers lead to jealousy, confessions and misunderstandings – plus a potato in the exhaust pipe!

Eric Chappell’s comedy is by turns hilarious and poignant, preposterous and touching. By the end, nobody’s relationships – or perhaps even partners – will ever be the same again!”

From the creator of top British sitcoms Rising Damp, Duty Free, Only When I Laugh and Home To Roost, Crime And Comedy Theatre Company proudly present Eric Chappell’s final play – a tribute to this remarkable writer who sadly passed away in 2022.
