January 25 - January 29
A 1975 vintage comedy from the author, Willy Russell, who wrote Educating Rita and Blood Brothers. This hugely funny play joins Betty, Reeny, Vera and their menfolk, who consider themselves a close-knit family team. Amidst the concealed jealousies and occasional recriminations Betty’s daughter Sandra announces that she is pregnant and intends to live unmarried with her boyfriend. The news explodes like an atomic bomb.
This is a cross between Abigail’s Party and the Royle Family with sharp comedy and thoughtful observation. A reminder of the mid 1970s period before personal computers and mobile phones but were families all that different?
