PUBLISHED: 08:20 03 February 2017




Alan Ayckbourn’s “darkly funny” comedy ‘Henceforward’ comes to the Cambridge Arts Theatre later this month.

Set sometime in the ‘not-too-distant future’, composer Jerome struggles vainly to complete his life’s masterwork about love…

With the help of a deranged android childminder, he hatches a cunning plan to retrieve his source of artistic inspiration, his beloved daughter Geain, from her mother, his hostile estranged ex-wife.

But the best laid plans of men and mechanical women…

‘Henceforward’ is at the venue from Wednesday 22 to Saturday 25 February for a range of 2.30pm and 7.45pm performances.

Tickets, which range from £18 to £33, are available from or by calling the box office on 01223 503333.
