CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Following the death of their father, his daughters Marion and Isobel must settle his Estate and safeguard the future of his younger wife, their stepmother Katherine. While Isobel, a partner in a design firm, takes pains to plan a fair and agreeable resolution, Marion, a determined and ambitious Junior Minister, views the situation quite differently. However, Katherine comes up with a far more radical proposal. The resulting power-play and undermining gamesmanship affects them all and those closest to them, with devastating consequences. Brilliantly and intelligently written, this is a witty, acerbic and intense examination of family relationships, human frailties and the unaccountable hand of fate. The plays contain scenes which have adult language and nudity.Performers Peter Egan (Tom), Belinda Lang, Jenny Seagrove, Simon Shepherd, Liza Walker, Melanie Gutteridge.
