Bookseller Alec Firth, who is having an affair with his assistant Liz, believes that he has organised his domestic arrangements so that they can fly off to Spain for a few days without wife Maggie suspecting. What could possibly go wrong?


First comes Phoebe, Alec's cranky, crafty 80 year old mother who has discharged herself from her Rest Home.


Next Alec's shiftless son Jamie arrives, complete with broken ankle.


And finally his heavily pregnant daughter turns up, with absolutely no intention of marrying the child's father.


Oh and did I mention the new, incontinent, puppy?







Ticket prices Wednesday £9 & £8, Thursday to Saturday £10 & £9


All evening performances begin at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm) unless otherwise stated.
