Interview: Scarborough Evening News (15 May 1990)

This page reproduces some of Alan Ayckbourn's significant quotes from the interview.

Bodily Obsession

by Gillian Enlund

"What would happen if an overweight person suddenly overnight became of Page Three proportions? I wanted to show how people's perceptions would change, and how the women would cope, or not cope."

"It is the kind of relationship that men are not privy to. I am always amazed how much women say to each other. Men never discuss themselves with each other in the same way."
