Set in Islington in 1992, Eleanor tries to persuade her husband Richard that they should have a baby. More focused on the recent deaths of two of England's best-loved comics, Benny Hill and Frankie Howard, than the sexual therapy sessions his wife has signed them up for, Richard and his neighbours celebrate the careers of their comedic heroes, particularly as Richard is one of the founding members of the local Dead Funny Society. Jokes about love and marriage are thrown back and forth with the usual Terry Johnson flare. But these jokes are masking the problems of the central relationship of the piece. Best West End Play Award, Time Out Award. Winner. Nominated for Best Comedy in Laurence Olivier Awards. Contains scenes of nudity and strong languagePerformers John Banks (Richard), Sherry Baines (Ellie), Robin Hooper (Brian), Nicholas Lane (Nick), Fiona Wass (Lisa).
