Alan Ayckbourn's delightful comedy confection, "Bedroom Farce," about the messiness of adult relationships, will play August 25 – September 12. The bedroom is the one room that sees the best, the worst, and the most of us. To the couples in "Bedroom Farce," it's also a dining room, a workshop, a cloakroom, and a boxing ring.
