Robert Powell and Liza Goddard star in Alan Ayckbourn’s brilliant comedy Relatively Speaking at the Lyceum Theatre in Sheffield next month.

Robert Powell is best known for his award-winning portrayal of Jesus in Franco Zefferelli’s Jesus of Nazareth.

Liza Goddard is well known for her appearances in shows like Doctor Who, Bergerac and Midsomer Murders.

In Relatively Speaking, Greg has decided Ginny is the girl for him.

When she tells him that she’s going to visit her parents, he decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand.

Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful breakfast.

But the only thing is – they’re not Ginny’s parents.

The play is at the Lyceum from September 19 to 24.

Tickets are £14 to £29 on 0114 2496000 or www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk
