The Secret Lives of Henry and Alice is a clever, witty, sparkling comedy that will guarantee laughter of recognition from any who have been in long-term relationships! Henry and Alice's lives have become a bit humdrum but their fantasy lives are certainly not!

Real life husband and wife, Martin Howells (well-known to Christchurch audiences for many productions at the Court Theatre) and Helen Moran (The Bone Keeper's Story and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf 2011) star in this outrageously funny two-hander by UK playwright David Tristram.

For Henry Smith - actor, raconteur, sporting hero, leading socialite, secret agent, Casanova and acting president of the United States - life was rarely dull.

For Alice Smith, housewife, life was rarely anything else.

Enter Michel, French waiter - tall, dark and available. Exactly what happened next, no-one's quite sure. Except that it involved a rotting melon, a deckchair and a bottle of neck-rub.

Fantasy burs into reality. Secret passions explode. And the two worlds which seem a million miles apart are suddenly on a collision course.

It could only happen to Henry and Alice. And only their pet goldfish, Orca, and you, will ever know the true story.
