Ten Times Table by Alan Ayckbourn
"Ten Times Table is a typical Ayckbourn comedy with a particularly riotous/hilarious last scene. The play, which is full of recognisable but flawed human beings, deals with the leading lights of a village who have decided to hold a pageant of local history based on a somewhat vague event ‘The Massacre of the Pendon Twelve’.
On the committee, however, is a young left-wing schoolteacher who decides to turn the project into a rally for proletarian revolution. Committee meetings become symbolic (and amusing) battlefields for conflicting views – the right-wing faction being led by the chairman’s wife.
The event itself turns into a serious confrontation between the two extremes with farcical results."
