"'Mixed Doubles,' 'an entertainment on marriage,' was originally presented at the Hampstead Theatre Club in February 1969 and was presented in this final version at the Comedy Theatre, London in April 1969. It takes the form of eightshort plays, each for two characters, written by Alan Ayckbourn, John Bowe n, Lyndon Brook, David Campton, Alun Owen, Harold Pinter, James Saunders and Fay Weldon. Each is an independent play in its own right but the whole sequence, linked by a series of wickedly anti-authoritarian monologues written by George Melly adds up to an amusing if acid picture of the progress of married life from honeymoon to cemetery." - from the dustjacket.
