Boy Meets Girl / Girl Meet Boy: Background

Boy Meets Girl / Girl Meets Boy are interlinked revues by Alan Ayckbourn and Paul Todd; this being their eighth revue together. The two revues were premiered as lunchtime entertainments in the summer of 1985 in the studio at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round, Scarborough.

There is no plot as such to
Boy Meets Girl / Girl Meets Boy. It is set in a restaurant and offers a wry look at relationships. There are three actors: a man, woman and another actress who does not speak. The songs are not titled and are introduced as part of the narrative, a technique Ayckbourn uses in the vast majority of his full-length plays with music.
