Critically acclaimed in both London and New York, My Wonderful Day is the most recent comedy by Tony® winner Alan Ayckbourn (The Norman Conquests, Absurd Person Singular), who has surprised and entertained audiences with over 70 plays in the past 50 years.  In this play, Laverne, an Afro-Caribbean cleaning woman, brings Winnie, her young daughter, to the house of her wealthy clients in London.  Winnie’s determined to complete her school assignment of chronicling her “wonderful day,” but quite unexpectedly finds herself witness to a tangled love affair.  What ensues is a wickedly funny and bold dissection of a turbulent marriage that serves as Winnie’s topsy-turvy initiation into Life. "One of the strongest productions I've seen on or off-Broadway in recent seasons; if you miss it, you'll regret it – a lot!” -The Wall Street Journal

Running Time: 
Approximately 90 minutes without intermission
