Backstage Comedy is a three-act play by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn, centred on the fortune changes of three couples. The action takes place during Christmas celebration and each act takes place at the home of a different couple in a successive year. On stage, the theme of materialism is explored, what does being rich  really mean and the struggles of the middle class.
