Özet

The paper analyses the premature warnings of British playwright, Alan Ayckbourn, who foresees that the modern family has been under the onslaught of technology. His dystopia, Henceforward... (1987), set in the flat of the high- tech addict protagonist, Jerome, tells one of the traditional family stories of the playwright. However, the paper focuses on Ayckbourn's neglected dramatic mission - that of securing the British family.
