Alsager Community Theatre is looking to brighten up your autumn with its production of one of Alan Ayckbourn’s funniest and most imaginative plays: Improbable Fiction. A group of would-be authors meet on a winter’s evening to discuss their work. Among them are writers of historical romances and children’s stories who are finding it difficult to start writing, and a crime writer who can’t stop. A creator of incomprehensible science fiction, a librettist without a composer and a writer of instruction manuals complete this motley crew. The affable chairman, Arnold, attempts to get the creative juices flowing by suggesting they all collaborate on a piece of writing. The outcome is hilarious, zany, extremely surprising and literally out-of-this-world!

This play will be performed at the Alsager Civic centre from the 27th – 30th November 2013.
