Kirk described Bedroom Farce as the story of four married couples in three bedrooms on a long Saturday night of do-it-yourself furniture, dysfunction, failed dinner parties, and ridiculous confrontations, leading to a funny and touching epiphany. He said Ayckbourn’s play had been described by the London Evening Standard as “hilarious” and “the stuff of gleeful recognition.”
