Alan Ayckbourn's new play is a dystopian vision of a world where people are divided by gender

Veteran playwright Alan Ayckbourn has written over 70 plays, including some much-loved comedies of manners, and plenty more dramas that are performed in his Scarborough hometown without much fanfare. So his epic two-parter 'The Divide' must be pretty special to land a West End premiere. It's a futuristic dystopia with more than a hint of 'The Handmaid's Tale' to it: after the spread of a disastrous plague, men and women are separated by gender, with women classified as impure. 

'The Divide' will be staged in two parts: you can watch them on successive nights, or see them in one day on one of four double-show days. Annabel Bolton directs.
