A wickedly funny comedy by Willy Russell
Directed by Tracey Batchelor
“Russell’s funniest and most poignant play” (Reviews Hub)
From the author of ‘Educating Rita’, ‘Shirley Valentine’ and ‘Blood Brothers’, comes this acutely observant comedy. Whilst wife Pauline plans another dinner party to keep one step ahead of their smug neighbours, Dennis finally loses patience on the eve of his landmark birthday. Fed up of his middle-class existence of poshed-up cottage pie, Tupperware and garden gnomes, Dennis reaches breaking point and packs a ruck-sack to escape. But will his plan work or is he destined for a life of domesticity? In the mould of Ayckbourn and Mike Leigh’s ‘Abigail’s Party’, you won’t want to miss having ‘one for the road’!
