    A clever, intriguing production



    'Jack Throne has a gift for dialogue.'
    The Times

     Cast: Zoe Boyle, Laurie Davidson, David Morrissey, Kate O'Flynn, Lesley Sharp, Sam Swainsbury

    Newbury, 1997. Sal is attempting to cook dinner for the family. She and husband David have pulled off a coup and gathered their brood back home for the weekend. Eldest son Carl is bringing his new girlfriend to meet everyone for the first time; middle daughter Polly is back from Cambridge University for the occasion; and youngest Tom will hopefully make it out of detention in time for dinner.

    Sal and David would rather feed their kids with leftist ideals and welfarism than fancy cuisine. When you've named each of your offspring after your socialist heroes, you've given them a lot to live up to...

    Jack Thorne and John Tiffany have previously collaborated on Hope and Let the Right One In at the Royal Court, as well as the award-winning Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in the West End/Broadway. Jack's most recent writing credits include Channel 4's The Virtues with Shane Meadows.
