Overview

Following the wake after their mother’s funeral, Kenny and Tom return to their old family home to hear the will their mother has left behind. Long forgotten traumas reach the surface when their estranged sister Beth arrives and the boys’ wives learn secrets that could break the family.

Off Main Stage’s new play explores the interaction of working class and middle class lifestyles, how inter-generational trauma is cyclical and no matter how far we get away from our past, it is always there.

Everything Theatre, Wolf, The Cockpit, 2022, 4 Stars and an Off-Fest Nomination

 

“A barebones production that focuses on the acting, and rightly so.”

The Spy in the Stalls, Stags, Network Theatre, 2021, 4 Stars

 

“This is a tense, toxic two-hander that grips the audience from the outset. Strong characters, exciting script full of shocking interactions and an intense finale – everything theatre should be.”
