Second Helping: History

Second Helping is Alan Ayckbourn's third revue with the composer Paul Todd and preceded their first full-length collaboration in the same year, Suburban Strains. The revue was written as a lunchtime entertainment which was performed alternately with a second, unrelated lunchtime revue First Course.

There is no plot to the piece, presenting as it does 10 different views of love. The revue has never been published, but is available for production.
