Take three couples, two households and one indiscreet love affair, and they add up to Alan Ayckbourne's farce, "How the Other Half Loves." The men work for the same firm - the youngest juggling an affair with his boss' wife - and when each sneaks in suspiciously one night, they concoct a story about having to spend quality time smoothing domestic matters in the house of the third couple.
Both living rooms are shown onstage, and they share a common dining room that whirls into its own character, serving two dinners simultaneously to four very intelligent - albeit, confused - people.
